Eastern’s Goldberg stands tall after taking the big challenge

VOORHEES – Zoe Goldberg wanted to a sprinter.

Growing up playing soccer, Goldberg believed her quickness on the pitch would translate into blazing times on the track.

However, when life in the fast lane didn’t work out, the then-middle schooler took a shot at something completely different.

“I was really interested in sprinting so I went out for the 100-meter (event for the Voorhees Middle School track and field team),” Goldberg said. “A ton of people wanted to run the 100. I wasn’t great at it. All of my friends made the team for the events they were interested except for me. So I went to the coach and told him I would do any event, just please put me on the team. He put me in throws.
