T-V’s Jimmy Bernstein won the race in a time of 16 minutes, 13 seconds.
It was the first time Bernstein ever ran the course.
“It’s definitely a great course,” said Bernstein, who is a senior. “It has uphills and downhills. There are some nice rolling downhills that help you go faster.”
Bernstein noted that he and teammate Omar Lopez, who finished second in 16:16, ran together for virtually the entire race.
“We were right next to each other the whole time,” Bernstein said. “We were pushing each other to go faster.”
Bernstein noted that he “went for it” at the end of the race to finish three seconds ahead of Lopez.

T-V’s Autumn Bender won the girls’ race in a time of 19:16. Camryn Johnson of Monticello was second in 19:32.
“This is the first time I’ve run on this course,” said Bender, an eighth-grader in her second season on the Lady Bears’ team. “I like the downhills. They are steep, but they are nice because you can start running faster when you go down them.”
Bender noted that she was part of a group of runners which stayed near the front during the entire race. The other runners in the group included Johnson, and SW teammates Kelsey Dutton and Dani Myers.
Bender said she “just kept going” to break away from the group and finish 16 seconds ahead of Johnson.
