For the first time in 5 years there was a meet at Farragut State Park, and although the location moved from the waterfront to Scott's Field on the North side of the park, the course was still technial and amazing, and the competition was still fierce. 29 schools came to preview this years State course, including 5A Boise Valley Schools Mountain View, Timberline, Meridian, Borah and Capital. Add these to Coeur d'Alene, Lewiston, Timberlake, Lake City, Post Falls and Lakeside and the environment felt like a State competitive meet.

Cori McClelland was the top SHS runner today, placing 13th, and running a PR 20:17 on the technical course and improving her own #9 All Time 5k result. She was followed closely by Katherin Kaul who ran a 20:18 and placed 14th, and Hannah Davidson was was 16th in a 20:23.
