Matt Blume (Logansport, Ind./Pioneer H.S.) led the Brown and Gold with a 22nd place finish overall with a time of 26:49, while Dennis Kabara (Chuka, Kenya/Mero H.S.) and Doug Brown (Lima, Ohio/Allen East H.S.) followed closely. Kabara was 25th with a time of 27:01, while Brown was 27th finishing in 27:08.

Adam Piaskowy (Crete, Ill./Crete Monee H.S.) was fourth for Valpo and 47th overall (28:12), while David Wheeler (St. Charles, Ill./St. Charles East H.S.) rounded out the scorers with a 54th place finish in a time of 28:35.
