High school boys cross country: D-C finishes in 2nd Place
Huntley put its five scoring runners in the top 19 to finish with 50 points and nudge out Dundee-Crown (57). Jacobs (78) was third.
“That’s really cool,” Conroy said of Huntley's team title. “My brother (Seth) and Keagan (Smith) never got that done. It’s quite an achievement.”
Raiders coach Matt Kaplan credited Josh Segura, usually Huntley’s No. 4 runner, with fighting through a fall on the course to still finish 19th. Huntley also counted Ian Geisler (seventh) and Chris Simek (17th).
“Dundee-Crown is a great team and ran an outstanding race,” Kaplan said. “Josh fell somewhere and was somehow able to get back with our five. It was close, seven points. I’m proud of how the boys ran, they hung together like they’ve done all season and pulled out the victory.”
D-C was led by Joey Devita in fifth, along with Lucas Janikowski (11th), Anthony Hurgoi (12th), Mark Jensen (13th) and Daniel Price (22nd) were the Chargers’ other scoring runners.
