Penn Kingsmen win first Goshen Relays title

GOSHEN — There was a first-time ever champion in the 71st running of the Goshen Relays Saturday at Foreman Field.

But it wasn’t much of a margin of victory.

The Penn Kingsmen totaled 84 points to capture the Class A crown for the first time, finishing ahead of runner-up Warsaw by one point.

The Kingsmen secured the title by winning a 4 x 400-meter relay (last event) as Christian Hill, Zach Oakley, Thomas Gales and Tim Deal finished in 3:28.96 in the first race. The Tigers foursome of Chad Goon, Gabe Furnivall, Nathan Kolbe and Ryan Goon kept the pressure on by winning the second race (3:26.85).

Elkhart Memorial was fifth (59 points) in the team standings, Northridge sixth (54 1/2), Goshen eighth (47 1/2), Elkhart Central 13th (30) and Concord 14th (23).

“We came in with a goal of fifth place so this is a little disappointing,” Goshen coach Brock Maust said. “But we know there is still a lot of the season left.”

The temperature was cool and the wind brisk on Saturday.

“We told the guys this was a good meet to treat like a practice,” Maust explained. “We wanted to make sure they were properly warmed up and after the race did the proper cool down. With the conditions the way they were, the last thing we wanted was for anyone to get injured. We looked at the meet as a good opportunity for us to grow.

“The other thing is we have not had our full team yet. We should have them this week. It’s going to be interesting to see how we do at full strength because we have four meets in eight days due to all the rescheduled meets.”

Deal was the high-point winner with 20 1/2 points. Davonte Millsaps of Elkhart Memorial was second at 18 1/2.

Deal won the 110 high hurdles (15.24) and finished second in the long jump (21-10). Millsaps captured the 100 meters (11.23).

Goshen’s best finishes were a second in a 4 x 100-meter relay as Mykal Kauffman, Cameron Kline, Samuel Byler and Abraham Medellin crossed the finish line in 44.94, a second in the distance medley relay from Reid Zimmerman, Mykal Kauffman, Alfonso Torres and Luke Kaufman (11:06.23) and a third in a 4 x 800 relay from Torres, Luke Kauffman, Medellin and Reid Zimmerman (8:19.12).

“The distance kids were a big factor for us,” Maust said. “The 4 x 800 looked strong. The 4 x 100 has had a personal best time in each meet so far, even if it had only been by tenths of a second.

“We were not hitting on all cylinders today. In the Relays, you need speed, distance and good performances in field events.

Byler was one Redskin the coach pointed out. He placed sixth in long jump (19-11) and tied for fifth in high jump (5-10).

“Sam scored in both events,” the coach said. “We have been waiting for him to pop a 20-foot long jump and he almost did today. He also got to 5-10 in high jump with no misses. I think that is going to be a confidence builder for him.”

In field events, the coach also highlighted the fact that both Josh Bustos (fifth at 12-0) and Jacob Isnogle (ninth at 11-0) placed high in pole vault.

Northridge went 1-2 in pole vault as Josh Rheinheimer took first (13-0) and Devin Puckett second (12-0). Michael Presnell, Jerry Burciaga, Jake Wargo and Hunter Johnson took second in a sprint medley relay (1:40.14).

Concord was led by Tyler Hoffman third in shot put (45-1 1/2).
