The teams continue to excel on the trail and in the classrooms, with the boys team GPA at 3.83 and girls team GPA 3.52. 

Ayres introduced team managers Reagan Colaw and Meghan Landers and acknowledged absent manager Elizabeth Gunnell.

Two individual girls qualified for state: junior Jillian Skalicky and senior Elena Fries.
