The boys finished fifth and the girls came in seventh.

Elkhorn races Saturday in the Southern Lakes Conference Varsity Meet at Badger High School in Lake Geneva. Coach Randi Wulf said the Elks used the Falcon Invite as a tune-up for conference.

Derek Davey and Caleb Hembree each registered top 10 finishes for the Elks.

Davey finished seventh on the five kilometer course in 17:32. Hembree finished eighth (17:40).
