Richard Boehm, a cross-country runner from Baden HS in Ohio was first across the line in the Goat.
Richard ran a very impressive 2:20 for the 10.5km race which had almost 900 meters of climb.
Richard was the 3rd place finisher at the Ohio Valley High School Orienteering Champs in October
at Otter Creek. Gerald Yip, from Cincinnati, finished second on the Goat in 2:29:30. The first Louisvillian in the Goat was Dan Mattingly. All 15 people who started the Goat managed to finish. A shorter event, the Junior Billy Goat (6.2km), was also contested. Ohio Valley High School
individual champ, Brent Hatfield took first in 1:54. Laura Boehn (Richard's sister) was second
in 2:16. There were a lot of new orienteers in the Junior division. Over half the starters failed to complete
the course.
