Recap: This was a very challenging course and a big test for our first full meet. Not only were there a couple significant hills on the trails, but the runners also had to endure a long climb up a major hill right before turning the corner to sprint in the last 150 meters.  Despite having little hill training at this point in the season, our runners handled the course pretty well.

Here are the results for the High School:
