Goessel runners compete well despite heat
Although the 93-degree weather was too warm to expect personal records, Goessel boys finished second out of the 10 teams racing Thursday at Bennington.
Senior Jerah Schmidt led the Bluebirds with a sixth-place medal in a time of 18:32.20. Jacob Schrag also medaled in 13th place at 20:11.60. Elyse Boden picked up 9th place in a time of 24:08.40. Team totals are accumulated from the top five runners and since the Goessel girls only have four runners, they are not eligible for team scores.
Goessel will compete at Marion on Thursday and the varsity boys will run at the prestigious Rim Rock course on Saturday.
