Will Johnson, a freshman racing his first year for Lakeridge, finished 12th with strong finishes by Jack Benziger in 20th and Brandon Kuhnert in 21st place. On the girls side, the top Pacer finishers were Lauren McIver in 13th and Sam Hargrove in 19th with strong first runs from Maddy Lawhead and Lizzie Aronson.
The Lake Oswego girls finished in first place with a 2nd, 3rd, 4th place sweep from Sarah Tucker, Keeley DeBar and Annie Wells. The Lake Oswego boys team had fast times from Travis Toal in 14th place and Alex Krenek in 15th. The boys team placed 5th for the race.
