"Charlie Keith and Joey Robinson are two freshmen who are making great strides as they improve each week. They finished 9th and 13th.
"Chandler Williams, Abel Logueflower and Cal Dampf finished out the varsity team. We are a young team but we are looking forward to seeing what they all can do.
"The girls varsity finished 5th with Julia Thompson leading the way with a 7th place finish. Julia is a freshmen that is very enjoyable to watch and we expect her to keep improving each week.
"Chloe Oberhauser, Haylee Kearns, and Emily Cody finished in a pack, pushing each other along the way. Amanda Ludwig, Livia Winch and Brittany Thompson finished out the varsity team."
