Goodman competed in the 800m, 1600m, and the 3200m, and won all three. In the 3 years Goodman has competed at state she has broken records, and this year is no different. She set new 1A state records in all 3 events.

As track season ends with these impressive victories, Samaron shares her hopes for the future.
