All of the JV runners medaled, with Jonas Sattler and Colten Preheim leading the way on the boys team finishing 19th and 28th respectively. Lanie Kaas led the girls team finishing 28th.
On the varsity side Lincoln Kippes and Alex Kuchta placed in the top half of the group while Jevin Erickson was able to finish the race with an injury.
