GOSHEN, IN — Twenty-four men and 12 women participated in cross country at Goshen College in the fall of 2014. Coached by Doug Yoder, the men’s team qualified for nationals for the first time in school history, where it finished 27th. The Maple Leaf women took ninth at the conference meet.
Team members included:
Luke Graber, a Mathematics major from Stryker, OH
Natalie Graber, an Elementary Education major from Stryker, OH
Luke was also among the 25 men and 21 women who competed on the 2015 Goshen College track and field team for Coach Doug Yoder. The Maple Leafs hosted the Crossroads League championship meet on April 24 and 25, with the women finishing eighth and the men ninth.
Natalie was also recently recognized for excellence in academics on the 2014-15 spring semester Dean’s List. The Dean’s List includes traditional undergraduate students earning at least a 3.75 GPA, while completing at least 12 hours of course work for a letter grade. Only grades from the designated semester are included in the Dean’s List selection process. The college initiated its Dean’s List in fall 1999 and it celebrates the achievement of students who have met high academic standards. The Dean’s List may also motivate students preparing for graduate studies, according to Anita Stalter, Goshen’s academic dean and vice president for academic affairs, who will retire at the end of June.
