need wheel recommendation

I have a 2010 Specialized Crosstrail. Hybrid bike with a suspension fork. Came with 700c wheels AlexRims. I have tacoed the front wheel, and have broken numerous spokes on the rear. I only rode single track once, when I bent the front rim. Otherwise it is my commuter bike and MUP, gravel road bike. I want to upgrade to a better wheel, add disc brakes and possibly upgrade my drivetrain. I ride Geax Mezcal 29X2.1. Bike is currently equipped with Shimano Deore 9 spd cassette. I race a couple of gravel road races and want a little better performance, but don't really want to buy a mountain bike.

Any suggestions?
