Goessel cross-country competes at Marion
Goessel’s cross-country teams had run in 95 degree weather before, but a 25 mph wind added a new dimension at the Marion Cross Country Club Cross Country meet Sept. 19. At a meet with 12 schools, the Goessel girls placed fourth and the boys finished fifth as a team.
Julia Nightengale finished the 5km race in 25 minutes, 35 seconds, capturing ninth place. Elyse Boden finished 13th in 26:20 and Porclein Unruh placed 18th with a time of 28:18.0. Maddy Meier and Edel Miller rounded out the scoring by placing 24th and 25th respectively.
Dawson Duerksen grabbed the only medal for the boys with a time of 20:58, placing 18th. Other Goessel runners included Jerah Schmidt, 25th; Nathan Impson, 34th; Zach Guerrero, 40th; and Noah Regier, 44th.
The Bluebirds will race Thursday at Harvey County East Lake.
