Goessel hosted the 1st ever HS Relay Track Meet on the evening of May 1 beginning at 8:20 p.m.

This single event meet was participated in by four of our senior class tracksters to give them one last time around the track in a meet. They participated in a unique medley relay for their final high school track meet with a goal of completing it in under 20 minutes and 20 seconds.

Luke Freeman ran a 100-meter dash, Porclein Unruh ran an 800, Elyse Boden ran a 1600 and Jerah Schmidt with a 3200. Brody Schroeder, a fifth senior, was not available to participate. The group came close to their goal, finishing in 20:58.8 (handheld timing was used) and four season-best times were run this evening for each of their legs! They were awarded the first-place trophy for winning the meet.
