Great job at Air Academy! A lot of athletes stepped up to run against some of the top 4A competition in the state. This is a great sign of the depth our team has. We didn't back down from the competition just because we didn't run our entire team. Instead, everyone stepped up nicely and gave some very good team a run for their money. Here are the team results.
Div I Boys: 2nd 1-5 Gap 69 seconds
Div I Girls: 3rd 1-5 Gap 53 seconds
Div II Boys: 1st 1-5 Gap 61 seconds
Div II Girls: 1st 1-5 Gap 35 seconds
