Jada Goeson placed 14th at the state track meet in the 800-meter run on June 9.

New York Mills freshman Jada Goeson finished in 14th place at the state track meet on June 9. The state track meet was held at St. Michael-Albertville High School. 

Goeson qualified for state with a time of 2:26.83 at the Section 6A meet. At the state meet she beat her personal best with a time of 2:26.14. She was just 3 seconds away from qualifying for the finals at the state meet.

Head track coach Hailey Windels said Goeson has worked hard all season and has put in a lot of effort to be able to advance to the state meet. She began the season with an 800-meter time of 2:36.30 and was able to cut off 10 seconds throughout the season. 

Goeson was the lone NY Mills track team member to advance to the state meet and will be just a sophomore next season for the Eagles.
