Goessel pair wins medals
Two Goessel seniors Jerah Schmidt and Elyse Boden ended their high school cross-country careers Saturday at the Class 1A state meet in Wamego, and both ran smart races to medal.
Boden worked her way to eighth place before the two-mile mark, and had enough of a lead finish ninth with a time of 21:25.1. She finished her career with the second highest finish for a Goessel girl at the state meet.
Schmidt started his race near 30th, but moved into the top 20 with less than a mile left. Schmidt completed the course in 18:08.7 to capture the 16th place medal.
