Goshen College Sophomore Nelson Kemboi is already leaving his mark on the Men’s Cross Country program. With the 2021 season coming to a close for the team, this is the first year that COVID hasn’t been the focal point. The focal point now is just the races.

Nelson has become the team’s standout as more than just an athlete though. Head cross country coach Rustin Nyce gives his point of view on how Nelson is not just simply a stellar athlete, he is a stellar leader.
