The girls placed third out of fourteen teams competing. Receiving individual awards for high placings were Thea Ledbetter, Kensie McKee, Heather Collins, Sarah Martinez and Quintin Watkins. Amazingly, Watkins lost a shoe in the first half mile; then went on to not only finish the race, but to receive a high placing. The team is coached by Jilly Russell and Shawn Jones.
