SYRACUSE — The Goshen Redskins opened the NLC portion of their schedule by defeating Wawasee 70-62 and falling to Concord 70-62 Tuesday evening at Wawasee. Concord was a 75-56 winner over Wawasee.

“Concord is a strong team and this was a good test to see what we are going to have in the conference,” Goshen coach Brock Maust said. “I was really happy with the we performed in the field events.

“To go from the bad weather we had before spring break and then come back for a meet this early I was very pleased with the way the girls handled it. The way the calendar fell we had almost two weeks for spring break.”

Concord coach Lindsay Yoder said, “I told the girls there is something different about this team. We have a lot of talent in about every area. In the past we have had some standouts. This year it is more across the board. We have a very large freshmen class and they also come with some talent.”

Concord was led by a pair of double winners. Junior Jessica O’Connell took the 100-meter hurdles (16.00) and the 300 hurdles (47.16) and freshman Mariah DeFreese the 100 (13.50) and 200 (27.56).

Also winning events for Concord were, junior Michelle Detwiler high jump (5-1), freshman Casey Buchanan the 400 (1:06.69), DeFreese, sophomore Ciana Bonfiglio, Detwiler and O’Connell the 4 x 100 relay (52.07); DeFreese, senior Janell Smart, senior Jennifer Reyes and O’Connell the 4 x 400 relay (4:25.20).

“Some of the freshmen are catching my fire quicker than the girls normally do,” Yoder said. “It’s great that the girls are this fired up this early in the season. We need that to make up for some of the voids we have due to graduation losses.”

Goshen senior Leah Kissinger won the 800 (2:36.79), sophomore Tricia Place pole vault (8-6), senior Jessica Wynn, Kissinger, Place and sophomore Adrienne Henke the 4 x 800 relay (10:45.00).

“It was nice to see Kissinger back on the track and healthy,” Maust said. “She had a nice kick and she looked very relaxed when she was running,

“Wynn looked good in her events. Overall we looked good in the distance events.”

Field events were another area the Goshen coach highlighted.

Besides Place in the pole vault, sophomore Maria Corbett was second (7-0) and freshman Jennifer Bustos third (7-0).

“We swept pole vault,” Maust said.

“(Junior) Kristen Hanson had a personal best (95-11) in discus and (junior) Tatyana Moore one in shot put (35-8). (Sophomore) Marisela Salazar looked strong in the 100 hurdles (second in 17.70) and 300 hurdles (second in 53.00). (Freshman) Nora Rangel looked good in the 300 hurdles (fourth in 54.30) and she also made up a lot of ground on the anchor leg of the 4 x 400 leading her team to a second-place finish.

“We are a young team, but I’m seeing great leadership from the six seniors.”

Wawasee had a doable winner as senior Jen Slabaugh took the 1.600 (5:59.15) and the 3,200 (12:54.29).

The Warriors did well in field events as senior Jordan Edington took shot put (36-9 1/2), junior Ruby Minnick long jump (15-1) and sophomore Caitlin Clevenger discus (99-0 1/2).

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?
