“I think we did really well,” said Northern senior Tyler DeLange, who won the race with a time of 16 minutes, 43 seconds.  “Matt (Thomas, who was second in 16:49) and I kind of ran together the whole race.  That was kind of our plan to run together and run strong.”

The Northern girls also had a strong showing, finishing second to Caro in a tight race.  Caro finished with 44, just two points ahead of the Huskies.  Hannah Jones of Northern was the winner of the girl’ racewith a time of 20:08.
