Some of the freshmen and sophomores sat out the meet April 27 at Marion in order to participate in an underclassmen event later in the season. So, the Goessel coaches used the Marion meet as an opportunity to try people in new events.

Berkholz, Laird Goertzen, and Evan Hiebert all brought home gold in individual events. The Goessel boys finished behind Berean Academy and Marion.
