Goessel runners improve in the rain

Contributing writer

At the Peabody-Burns cross-country meet on Thursday, the runners experienced wet and cold conditions. Eight runners on the Goessel team posted their best times of this season.

Top 20 finishers at the meet were Ali Buller at 12th in the girls’ varsity race. Heath Goertzen picked up 13th place and Davis Cook came in 19th in the boys’ varsity contest. In the junior varsity race, Jake Herrel (13th) and David Hess (15th) ran well to stay in the top half. Kylee Unruh competed in the girls’ junior varsity race and finished the course in 14th place.

“Although cold and rainy, the meet was a blast,” Coach Tyler Schroeder said.

This meet had smaller schools so the Goessel team was able to compare their chances against schools more their size. The Bluebird teams will be at Marion on Thursday.
