GREAT FALLS -- Tuesday at Anaconda Hills, Great Falls High standout Gavin Groshelle finished second overall at the city cross country meet and said after the race he was tired.

And that's understandable.

The Bison junior pulled double duty, playing every minute of crosstown soccer on Monday, before hitting the tough course at Anaconda Hills on Tuesday.

For Groshelle, who has had to miss one cross country meet and one soccer game due to conflicting schedules, it's all in a day’s work, but he does have one very important motivation.

“Crosstown is always the hardest competition in both sports out of the year,” Groshelle said. “It's always the most aggressive for soccer, so you get beat up and then the next day I have to run on the hardest course in the state. Personally, I play four sports during the year. And never once have I won a crosstown, so that's my goal, is I got to win a crosstown by the time I graduate."

Groshelle also participates in swimming during winter sports season and track and field in the spring.
