The team, led by Rodolfo Sanchez’s second-place finish, put four runners in the top 10 and had a 1-5 split of 1:01. Edwin Klanke and Ethan Blackwelder finished third and fifth while Alex Schimmel finished eighth, respectively.
Jack Glynn finished 11th, Jack Sipperly finished 21st, and Patrick McCabe, rounding out the top seven, finished in 22nd.
