SPORTS SCORES:

The boys tennis team finally got their match finished against Lakeland after rain caused two different attempts to be rescheduled.  Jacob Grewe started things off with an 8-0 win at 1 singles, and the last match of the 5-0 sweep finished right as the rain drops started.  They finish their regular season against Memorial tonight which is also Senior Night.  Logan Troyer, Bobby Sessa and Simon Myers will all be playing to finish their NLC seasons undefeated.

The Goshen RedHawks beat Concord, 28-25.

The JV football team lost to the Concord Minutemen, 28-7.  Conner Kulp had one touchdown pass.  Kaleb Nine had one touchdown reception.  Hewitt Nafziger had one interception.

The girls varsity volleyball team defeated South Bend Adams 2-0 and Ft. Wayne 2-0.  They lost to Elkhart Central 0-2.

The Lady RedHawks golf season has drawn to an end but not without a little excitement.  The short-handed girls only took four golfers to sectional play at Noble Hawk in Kendallville.  When the final Goshen golfer, Olivia Thomas posted her 105, the season was not necessarily over.  Olivia Lehr was in the clubhouse with a season best 91 and was in the running to go to the Regionals.  She shot 50-41 for the day and it could have been better.  In Sectional play, the top three finishing schools advance and the top three individuals advance.  Unfortunately Olivia’s 91 was bested but not until the team had to wait for the next three schools to finish. The girls posted a team score of 489 to wrap up the 2016 season.

The girls cross country team finished 14th at the West Noble invitational.  Ariana Perez-Diener placed 14th followed by Kirsten Graves 66th, Persis Wade 110th, Yadira Sanchez 113th, Brandi Smith 128th, Veronica Qurioz 133rd and Elena Meyer-Reimer 134th.

The boys cross country team placed 3rd at the West Noble invitational.  Jason Barahona placed 3rd followed by Zach Oyer 13th, Sergei Culp 42nd, Irving Suarez 47th, Felix Perez-Diener 50th, Jonathon Snyder 51st and Angel Arreola 60th.

The Goshen girls soccer team had a strong performance at home Saturday evening defeating Fort Wayne Concordia 3-0.  Senior Aylissa Trosper once again led the RedHawks offense with two goals.  Anne Nisley also scored a goal and Hannah Kurtz had an assist.  The defense earned their 6th shutout for the season led by keeper Kassandra Rodriguez with six saves.  The girls record now stands at 9-2.

The JV boys soccer team defeated Northridge 1-0.  Emylio Romo scored a goal for Goshen and Chris Losano had an assist.  They lost to Concord 0-5 in the final JV tournament.
