South Sioux City won the team title with 105 points.  “I was pleased with how our girls competed in this meet”, Coach Derry Trampe commented.  “We had a lot of quality performances on the day, and we had some girls that made big improvements from where we were earlier in the year.  We are headed in the right direction.”  Rounding out the team scoring were: Valentine (73), O’Neill (55.5), Norfolk Catholic (52), Ainsworth (48.5), North Central (37), Summerland (33), St. Mary’s (26), Wausa (6), Chambers/Wheeler Central (1), and Boyd County (0).

The Chanticleer boys finished 5th in a tight team race with 74 points.  “Our boys were right in the thick of the team race”, Coach Trampe said.  “We scored well on the day, and I am happy with how many points we were able to score.  We are still missing a few key contributors to our team because of injuries.  Hopefully, they will be cleared soon, and we can get them competing for us again.  They will add a lot of points to our total.”  South Sioux City won the boys meet as well with a total of 95 points.  Norfolk Catholic was second with 83 points followed by Ainsworth with 79 and O’Neill with 76.  Rounding out the team scores were: North Central (38), Summerland (27), Chambers/Wheeler Central (22), Valentine (20), Wausa (8), St. Mary’s (5), and Boyd County (0).
