They had run a  95:01  team time which is 6th all-time in the State of Utah, and a school record by 50 seconds.
We had two all-staters: Emily Orton was 9th in 18:52.8 (2nd all-time at AFHS) and Maddie Bench was 10th in 18:53.9(3rd all-time at AFHS).

The boys won their 4th straight State Championship, scoring 29 points.
Their team time of 78:17.6 was 2nd fastest All-Time behind the 2010 AF team (78:01).
The team was led by Brayden McLelland, Individual Runner-up with a school and 5A Senior Class record 15:18.1.
He was followed in 4th place by Connor McMillan with a 15:30.7 (6th all-time at AFHS).
