Led by an outstanding performance by Seth Neal of the CV team, who ran a meet-best time of 17:51:00, and Nathaniel Welch who finish in fourth place with a time of 19:16:00, CV came extremely close (one minute from a fourth place finishing Welch) to opening their season with a close win.

On the girls side of the action, the CV girls were unable to take a win as they fell by a score of 50-15. The CV girls were led by a strong outing from freshman McKenna Cary who finished fifth overall with a time of 23:01:00 to lead the CV girls.

Only one other CV girls runner cracked the top ten, with sophomore Ali Bieser finishing with a time of 24:50:00 to round out the top performers for the Cowanesque Valley Indians cross country team.
