Edwardsville's Roland Prenzler was the winner but the victory seemed a little hollow because Granite City rescinded its membership. Prenzler will be joyous to battle Andrew O'Keefe of Granite City. They are two of the state's best runners. Add in freshmen talent Fiker Rosen of Quincy and Byron Jones of Belleville East who will fight for a top five spot.

Girls: #18 Edwardsville and #21 O'Fallon are two of the top teams in the state. They will battle every week for here on out. Abby Korak is ready to win the title.
