Edwardsville posted a team score of 22, followed by Triad with a 52 and Highland with a 99 and Collinsvile with 100.

“We knew in the boys race that Granite City was not going to run Andrew O'Keefe, but we had a couple of boys who pushed the pace the first mile and a half,” Edwardsville head coach George Patrylak said. “The boys came back after an amazing showing at Peoria with a quick turnaround, but we wanted to keep our county titles mark in place. Triad has a very good boys team all the way to the underclass. The boys pounded and performed well in their races.”

Father McGivney Catholic scored a 35 to capture the small schools team standings, followed by Civic Memorial (43); and Roxana (49); then East Alton-Wood River (125).

Cree Stumpf won the boys small school race with a time of 16:49.20: Ryne White was East Alton-Wood River’s top finisher in 11th (18:59.30). Mark Eldridge was fourth for CM in 17:35.48, followed by Parker Borth (sixth, 17:52.06); and Drake Stephenson (eighth, 18:37.02). Jacob Rummerfield was top placer for Marquette in 20th place (20:26.15).

McGivney’s Tyler Guthrie was second in small schools in 17:03.39, followed by Zachary Brasel (third, 17:16.51); Tanner Fox (fifth, 17:38.11); and Elijah Burns (ninth, 18:47.02).
