The cold weather didn't slow things down too much as Eaton's Logan Gullett and Andie Rasmussen set the tone for all cross country runners at Wednesday's Frontier Academy Wolverine Invite.
Gullett cleared the finish line in 16 minutes, 55.2 seconds to win the boys race while Rasmussen finished in 20:04.9 to take the girls title.
Although Eaton got first place finishes in both races, it was unable to grab team win in the event.
Heritage Christian Academy got a second-place finish from Xander Stanton and teammate Ryan O'Loughlin finished sixth to get the Eagles the overall team win.
Estes Park's Nolan Marske took third at 17:18.8 while Northridge had Colton Magnuson and Jaeden Nelson finish fourth and fifth, respectively.
Northridge had a much better showing in the girls race as Victoria Perales took fourth and Karley Beck took sixth. Overall the Grizzlies had four girls finish in the top 10 which gave them enough points to get a team victory.
Estes Park lost a close battle for that top team spot but got a solid showing from its top runners. Freshman Heather Russell took fifth at 21:55.2 and Charlotte Raymond's 22:16.8 was good for eighth.
Heritage Christian's Ainsley Stanton finished second overall at 20:45.3 and Severance's Hannah Schissler finished third at 20:56.7.
