Coach Matthew Goetz is in his first season as the Cross Country and Track Coach. Goetz graduated from Fort Hays (Kan.) State University in 2009 where he ran track and Cross Country. He was then able to join the coaching staff at FHSU. There he cut his teeth in the coaching world before moving on to join the Holton High School track and field coaching staff.
At Holton he guided many distance runners to state qualification and help them break numerous school records. During this time, Coach Goetz earned his master’s degree from Fort Hays State in health and human performance. “I’m very excited to start working with the runners. I have been away from the coaching realm for a little over a year and can feel the itch to get started” said Goetz.
Goetz also brings teaching and real world experience with him to Hesston College. He has taught business classes at Holton High School, Newton High School and Highland Community College.
