First-year runners Loy Waid and Sadie Filius also placed 48th and 57th, respectively for the Ponies, while Maleigha Fuzesy was 70th and Neveah Phillips was 77th, rounding out the race for the Ponies.

Meanwhile, a young HHS boys team was led by senior Dylan Young, who finished in 36th place for the Ponies. Young crossed the finish line in 18:01.38, while Caleb Tomac placed 41st in 18:12.28.
