Ashley Goebeler, 10, of Dover, participated in the Hershey Track and Field Games at East Pennsboro on May 6. She took first place in the 9- to 10-year-olds’ softball throw, 400 meter dash and 200 meter dash.

She then advanced to the district meet, June 16 at Palmyra Middle School, where she finished fourth in the softball throw and third in the 200. In the 400 event, she placed second, which qualified her to compete at the state track meet.

At the state meet, held July 7 at Penn State Main Campus, she finished second in the 9- to 10-year-olds’ 400 meter with a time of 1:14.59. She did not qualify to move on the North American Finals (the last meet in the program).


  1. Wow – Ashley you did a great job! Looks like Dover has a star athlete comming there way!

  2. YOU GO GIRL! I bet none of my boys could catch you!
    Great job!!!

  3. way too go. keep it up , i have no doubt you will soon be number one. with a bullet.

  4. I have competed in the Hershey track and field games after that meet as well. This year, 2014, I made it to the state meet again. I competed n the 800 meter dash and came in 3rd place. Today I am 12 years old and Hershey Track and Field is no longer available to me. Hershey is starting a new program which I am too old for. Anyway, I would like to thank everyone for their support. I love you all.
