"It was great to return another championship banner to Eye St, our first since 2019 but our 8th since 2008!" exclaimed head coach John Ausema.  "We scored a low 31 points against tough competition, probably our best overall team race of the season. I think it sets us up well for the DC championship and the Nike regional championship."

Here are some great photos from the day as the program also competed in the JV and Freshman races:
