In a tri-meet with Clarion-Limestone, the Bobcats took six of the top seven spots with only C-L’s Andrew Forrest (3rd place; 18:27) keeping the top seven from being a clean sweep for Clarion.

Nathaniel Lerch led the way for Clarion winning the race in a time of 17:54 followed by teammate Nick Schill (18:24). Also for the Bobcats, Frank Weber was fourth (19:02), Don Cunningham was fifth (19:07), Noah Schill was sixth (19:13) and Daniel Ketner was seventh (19:20).

North Clarion’s top runner was Josh Homan in eighth (19:24) but Clarion grabbed the next two spots as well with Jacob Smith taking ninth (20:14) and Nate Datko 10th (20:41).

Jacob Kaltenbach was 11th for North Clarion with Wyatt Troup taking 12th and Cody Rusiewicz 13th.

Braden Rankin was the next C-L runner finishing 14th. The Lions didn’t have enough runners to score.

C-L’s top runner was Hannan Rittenhouse in fifth.
