Mason West placed 14th overall with a time of 20:34 to lead the junior varsity squad. Marcus DePorter and Evan Schepp were not far behind, earning 25th and 26th. Broderick Frye and Andrew Rollette also competed.

Olive Coburn and Gwen Truesdale led the girls.

“They are hitting their stride and push each other well in races and finished with the same time of 24:47, good enough for 48th and 49th,” Carstens said. “Also crushing their race and making huge drops in time were Sophie Walton, Sabrina Bomberg and Jenna Lee.

The varsity girls placed 11th with 279 points.
