After Lee, rounding out the top five for Wylie were Jeremiah Porter (17th in 17:53.00), Nick Noguez (21st in 18:08.00), Ryan Rigby (22nd in 18:11.00) and Timothy Vansaders (25th in 18:20.00).

Rebecca Spiegel (fourth in 20:07.00) and Makayla Marley (ninth in 20:40.00) each qualified for the regional meet as individuals. Prosper’s Allie Tayler (19:44.00) won the girls’ race. After Spiegel and Marley, the next three Lady Raiders to cross the finish line were Clairece Lopez (17th in 21:18.00), Sasha Elizondo (32nd in 22:26.00) and Haylie Hadjiev (36th in 23:21.00).
