“My plan was to get in front after 100 meters and stay there,” he said. “It felt really good to cross the finish line. That is something I have always dreamed of doing.”

Goudeau led from start to finish, and he held off a late push to hang on to the victory. He came to Simplot Games last year and was unable to run due to an injury.

“I wanted to redeem myself from last year, and I am glad I was able to do so.”

Goudeau has offers to run in college and his goal is to someday win an NCAA title.

More than 2,100 athletes have come from across the U.S., Canada, and Australia to participate in the 38th annual Simplot Games. Simplot Games remains the nation’s premier high school indoor track and field event. Sponsored by the J.R. Simplot Company since 1979, the Simplot Games are held at Idaho State University’s Holt Arena in Pocatello, Idaho.
