Woznick was followed across the finish line by Austin Benoit in ninth place, Casey Aman (10th), Tyler Harney (14th), Chris Coles (16th), Grant Aman (20th) and Mark Cruickshank (26th).

Rockford won the junior varsity race for the sixth straight year, taking the top three places. The Rams were led by senior Andrew Pitcher with a time of 17:15, followed by fellow seniors Connor Jewell and Mark Lehman. Rockford’s Mitch Switzer and Tyler Aman also had strong races, finishing among the top nine places.
