The boys’ race found Ethan Drake and Shane Kobald racing each other to the line for 24th and 25th places at 19:21.26 and 19:21.30 respectively. Gabe Richardson was Meeker’s third to finish, at 19:57 and 38th. Ashdon Seibert took 64th place at 22:19, and Gage Richardson was 68th, at 22:46. The boys were 10th in team scoring. “We saw some serious competition at the regional meet this year. We had some good performances, as Ethan and Ainsley both put up new PR’s,” said head coach Marty Casey. “I want to thank all of our runners, especially those new to cross country, for all of their work this season.”
