Emily Jenks covered the 2.6 mile course at Valley View Golf Club in 22:08. Taryn Tracy was close behind, finishing in a time of 22:42, tops among Whitehall runners and good for second place.

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.

The Railroaders’ Jesse Colomb was fifth and Sweenor was seventh.

The team will compete in the Burnt Hill Invitational in Saratoga at 10 a.m. on Saturday and will travel to Lake George at 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday.
