The girls race winner was Shelby Hayes of Winter Park in 18 minutes, 14 seconds. The boys race winner was Colonial's Steven Fernandez in 15:58.25.

The sixth-place Wolves boys (157) were led by senior Michael Zwijacz, who placed 17th in a season-best 16:54.60. Newsome's four other top runners finished in the top 50.
