More than 200 boys ran in the meet the Kimball boys each showed improvement as well, with Zachery Wagner earning 19th place, and a medal, with a time of 18:34.

Following Wagner, in 34th place, was Thomas Lenzen with a time of 19 minutes flat, Conner Cluff with a time of 21:47, improving from last week's time of 22:42 and Chris Barker with his time of 21:54 improving from 22:24 in Alliance.

Cole Henton ran the course in 22:16, followed by Brady Kilgore in 22:47, Draven Vickery in 23:50, Jordan Cluff in 24:12 and Stephen Bateman in 27:32.

Junior High School runners struggled a bit more with the course and none improved on their previous times.
