Victoria Davis finished fifth in a time of 23:59 while Haley Wiskoski, Emily St. Germain and Mary Beebe came in seventh, eighth, and ninth places, respectively.

In the boys race, Argyle placed seven runners in the top 10 to win the race 22-37.

PJ Ferguson led Whitehall with a second place finish, covering the course in a time of 15:45. The Scots’ Daryn Hutchings was first in a time of 14:42.
