Roxana won the Small Schools team crown with a 20, followed by CM (47); and MELHS (60).

Edwardsville won the large school division with a 15. The remaining teams had four finishers or next, but Alton was first on that list.

Edwardsville head coach George Patrylak said his top runners once again kept a strong pace.

“We ran a pretty solid group of girls today,” the coach said. “Krone and England ran their better races of the season. Highland and Triad both have solid girls teams. We tried to let some of the other teams dictate the pace the first mile and a half, then our girls started to separate from them.”
