Teammate David Rose, making his first semistate appearance, finished 90th with a time of 17:38.

In the team races, the Seymour girls finished 12th with 338 points while the boys took 13th with 367.

Freshman Kinsley Folsom showed the future is bright for the Owl girls’ program with a 44th place finish at 20:33.

Senior Grace Rennekamp and Makenna Sunbury finished behind her in 50th and 56th with times of 20:41 and 20:53, respectively.
