A third place finish by Ayden Black in the boy’s race with a time of 17:41 led the Maur Hill-Mount Academy Ravens. 

For Jefferson County North a fourth place finish by Trevor Pentlin in the boy’s competition with a time of 18:10 was the top performance, while Rose Wendling placed 20th in the girl’s race. 

Perry Lecompton had a trio of girls place in the Top 20 as Jolie Hirsch, Blaise Ball and Kassidy Schumann earned 16th, 18th and 19th place finishes. 

Valley Falls also had competitors in action and while the Dragons did not have any Top 20 finishes, Noah Hefty had their best showing finishing just outside the Top 20 with a 21st place finish.
