PREP GIRLS TRACK AND FIELD: Room to improve

Goshen girls look to move up in NLC in 2014

GOSHEN — When Brock Maust took over the Goshen High School boys track and field program eight years ago he told them it would take four to six years to build the program.

Last season when he also became the GHS girls track and field coach he told the team they didn’t have that kind of time.

“The returning letterwinners plus the seniors and juniors understand that,” the coach said. “We placed sixth in the NLC meet and that did not sit well with the girls.”

Maust shared his thoughts about coaching both genders.

“Doing both have not been easy, but it has been the best thing for the program,” he said. “The girls are really stepping up to the plate when it comes to training with the guys. We have found out that the boys can be a big help in training the girls.

“The girls team cares about how the guys do and vice versa. There is more of a family atmosphere.”

The Redskins opened the season with a 93-39 victory over West Noble. Goshen was off last week for spring break and returns to action Tuesday in an NLC meet with Plymouth and Wawasee at Foreman Field in Goshen.

The are 15 letterwinners back for this season.

Seniors are Tori DeVries, Edith Gonzalez, Kristen Hanson, Katya Hernandez and Denisse Rodriguez. Juniors are Jasmyn Brown, Brianna Clawson, Maria Corbett, Adrienne Henke, Tricia Place, Marisela Salazar and Brianna Yoder. Sophomores are Jennifer Bustos, Kyrie Potter and Nora Rangel.

Distance was a strength of the Redskins last season as it will be again this season

Our 4 x 800 relay was pretty good and it should be good again this season,” Maust said. “Henke, Rangel and Brown all return and when we add (freshman) Ashton Ellis we think we have a pretty good one again.

    Two decades after NASCAR started running at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the crowds have thinned considerably.
