Luke Pohl led the way, finishing second overall with a time of 16:13. Seth Windle placed 10th overall with a time of 16:47. Hunter Torolski (18:12), Quinn McLaren (18:48), Nathan Sutrick (18:52), Eric Moore (19:39) and Caleb Godin (20:01) all ran extremely well. Not only did PCA have two runners in the top 10 for all of Division 4, but as a team had their best showing, finishing 9th in the State of Michigan. In fact, there was only 5 points separating the 5th place overall team and PCA! It was an extremely competitive race!
