Alexa Leppelmeier brought home fourth place for Pettisville, finishing the race at 21:44. Less than ten seconds later, Elizabeth Sauder took sixth place with a time of 21:52. Thirteenth place belonged to Blackbird Nichole Foor thanks to her time of 22:55.
The Pettisville boys also claimed fourth place overall in the race. That honor belonged to Kyle Lantz and his time of 17:37. Teammate Jacob Hauter completed the race just over a minute later, at 18:40, to take twelfth place. Ben Gray finished in twenty-second place, running a 20:19.
These times were good enough for the Blackbirds to finish fourth at the event.
