But it was no sweat for Nick Hauger on his home course during the senior race that capped the Highlander Invitational cross country meet. Hauger contented himself to lay back in the pack until the second half of the 2.5-mile race, when he surged to approach then-leader Michael Williams of Richland, drafted behind him, then cut inside on the turn and buried him on the final hill.
