Leading the way were the medal winners: Logan Detweiler (15:57), Brendan Downey (a personal best 16:03), Jet Miller (17:11, personal best), Caulfield (17:24, personal best). Edmund Shall ran great (a time of 18:12) and both Kaden Boismier-Behr (18:31) & Luc Michaud (18:32) ran the best times of their careers. It was another step forward toward their goal of a return trip to the State Finals. The JV Blue Devils were also excellent today, finishing 5th of 32 teams with TONS of their own personal records. Just a few standouts leading the way in a HUGE field of runners: Alex Rajewski, both Eric & Ethan
