Ava Rush finished third in 22:15.81, Madison Botos finished ninth in 23:59.78, Pluma Pross was 12th, 24:10.55 and Addie DeArment placed 13th in a time of 24:28.50. As far as team points are concerned, Botos finished seventh, Pross tenth, and DeArment was eleventh. North Andrew didn’t have enough runners to compete for the team title, so their placings didn’t count for points. Meanwhile, Kelsi Siedlik was 19th, and Claire Wiederstein finished 21st for the Trojans.

The Atlantic boy’s with four runners in the top ten won the team title with 37-points. Craig Alan Becker led the way with a second-place finish in a time of 18:12.78.
