The girls' meet went to South Putnam with 31 points as Northview took second with 36, South Vermillion was third and Clay City placed fourth as the other five squads represented, did not field a full team.

Mallory Glaze won the individual title with a time of 22:27 to best Fountain Central's Morgan Grubb by 37 seconds.

The boys' competitors toed the line first on Tuesday evening and from the opening gun it was a four-man race up from as Northview's Nic Yocom and Clay City's Jake Tiefel trailed behind the Cascade runners by a short distance during the first half of the race. Musson began to break away from the other front-runners. Shepherd and Yocom raced side-by-side until the final stages of the race as the Cadets' runner pulled away to top Yocom by 25 seconds.

Clay City's Blake Cochran placed eighth in 19:19 and the Knights took the final two spots in the top-10 as senior Collin Richards placed ninth in 19:25. Ian Heffner took 10th in 19:27.

In the girls' race, the Eagles' freshman cruised over the second half of the race to earn a win by 37 seconds. Glaze was the only South Putnam runner in the top-10, but the Eagles placed their next six runners between 11th and 19th. The four scoring runners for South Putnam were separated by barely a minute, which enabled South Putnam to claim the team title.

The Knights were led by Alyssa Conrad, who crossed the finish line in fourth-place with a time of 23:32 followed by sister, Emily Conrad in 24:36, which was good for seventh-place. The Knights also got a ninth-place from Hannah Zadeii, who finished in 24:44.
