In episode three of the Globe Sports Corner, Zachariah Begly interviews both head coach Rustin Nyce and runner Vincent Kibunja. In the interviews, Begly discussed rankings, upcoming meets and the preparation of both Nyce and Kibunja. Vincent Kibunja took first place overall, running one of the 35 fastest times in Goshen College men’s cross country program history, and the Maple Leaf men posted a second-place finish out of 21 schools Friday at the Knight-Raider Invitational hosted by Grand Rapids Community College and Calvin College. Kibunja finished the 8-kilometer (4.97-mile) loop at Riverside Park in 25 minutes, 52.8 seconds, beating the field by more than five seconds per mile on his way to his first individual victory of the season. His time was the ninth-fastest ever run by a Maple Leaf senior and only three seniors have faster clockings. The Goshen College women’s soccer team had another charity event in the John Ingold Athletic Complex. In this match, the Maple Leafs spread awareness of Pediatric cancer versus Indiana Institute of Technology. The Maple Leafs switched their regular home attire to yellow to represent Pediatric cancer. In the package, captain Kayla Shaw speaks about the importance of spreading awareness. Also, assistant coach Juliana Chupp speaks of her transition as a player to a coach. She also added that the team met their goal of raising $1,000. Also, the host Benjamin Cotton informs us of Maple Leaf athletic events both on campus and on the road.
