Also running were Molly Simmons (59th, 26:04.09) and Jaden Johnson (78th, 30:09.35).

The Panther boys were led by Emry Colby (54th, 20:19.22) and Landon Goodenberger (55th, 20:24.62). Also scoring were Avery Norman (58th, 20:56.58), Brayden Hoffman (63rd, 21:12.52) and Declan McCarthy (74th, 21:56.41).
