Women's track & field welcomes new face

Jan. 14, 2008

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Elsabeth Goshu, a 2006 NCAA Division II Cross Country All-American, has joined the women's track & field program at semester. Goshu transfers to JU from Western State College in Colorado.

"Elsa's high school and college performances indicate she will be one of the best distance athletes JU has had to date," said head coach Ron Grigg. "She was slowed this fall with some injuries and only ran in one cross country event. We will bring her along very slowly this track season and hope to see her really ready for the 2008 cross country season."

Goshu has an indoor 5k personal best from high school of 17:38 set at the 2005 National Scholastic Championships and ran 21:19.4 for 6k at the 2006 NCAA Division II Cross Country Championships.
