The sister duo of Aubrey and Abby McIntyre took fourth and fifth place, respectively. The Lady Rams finished with a total of 40 points, edging out Harlan by a single point to be crowned champions.

  In the boys race, Glenwood was led by junior Sam McIntyre, who crossed the line in seventh place, followed closely by senior Parson Covington, who took eighth. Senior Mason Parks and junior Tyler Huey were two more Glenwood runners that ran in a pair, finishing 13th and 14th, respectively.

  The team trophy in the varsity boys race was earned by CB Thomas Jefferson. The Yellow Jackets took the top three spots in the race, with Aidan Bootan coming in first, Wimach Gilo second and Juan Martinez third.
