In a tight competition, Conley girls used their depth to once again edge out rivals South Central and New Bern. While their SC and NB were able to capture the first 3 spots, DHC took 5 of the next 6 spots to secure the win. Rose and Southern Wayne also competed but did not field complete teams so they recorded no score.
There was a heavy downpour of rain during the race but the runners still posted some of their best times of the season. Hana Smith of New Bern was the overall winner in a season best time of 20:56, followed by the South Central’s Natalie Baldwin and Paige Witteborg. Then Conley rolled in with Annika Stoakes (4th, 21:37), Eve Curtis (5th, 22:06), Abby Yoon (6th, 22:25) Channing Mitchell (7th, 22:32) and Hayley Ferrell (9th, 23:00). Also scoring for Conley was Alice Guth (12th, 23:15) and Caitlin Brown (25th, 24:32).
