For the boys, junior John Coss (17:39), sophomore Leif Stephens (17:50), and junior Paul Allmendinger (17:51) qualified. The boys team placed second by beating Thunder Mountain, while the girls team placed third.
The Thunder Mountain Falcons (5-2, 2-0) dominated the Kayhi Kings (2-5, 0-2) winning 80-6. The loss for the Kings means that they will not make it to the playoffs. Kayhi seniors Trevor Brock, Nico Deguzman, Dallas Dillard, Luke Dossett, Zack Eichner, Michael Greer, Kenny Hage, Larsen Nebl, Trevor Ortiz, Darian Sharp, Cody Workman, and Caleb Zartman played their final home game for the Kings, but the team has one last game this season.
