On the boy’s side, Evanston paced the field with the Wolves following close behind in second. Lander rounded out the top three at the Invite.

Not to be outdone, Green River was also impressive, with four Wolves runners in the top 10.

Individually, Evanston’s Dillon Gilpin paced the field for the win. Gilpin finished approximatley 30 seconds in front of teammate Sam Richens.
