  • Haughton sophomore Mitchell Landry took the boys 4A race in 16:26.9 over St. Michael's junior Grant Dietrich, but Dietrich led his team to the top of the podium, 55-62 over Ruston.
  • Runnels soph Matthew Rice recorded the fastest boys' time of the two day event, running 16:17.7 to win the 2A race over Jared Chapman's 16:31.5.  Chapman led his 2A powerhouse Episcopal squad to the title with a slim 26 points, well up on runner-up St. Thomas Aquinas' 101.
  • St. Thomas Acquinas senior Malia Cali once again had the best girls performance, running 18:17.4 to lead teammate Carmen Brothers across the line second in 19:30.9.  The 1-2 punch from St. Thomas Aquinas wasn't enough to defend their 2008 title, however, as Episcopal tied them at 75 points apiece through 5 runners and then took the 2A team win on the 6th-runner tiebreaker (35th to 47th)
  • Airline senior Rebecca Blubaugh took the girls 5A race in 18:45.6, second fastest of the meet overall, while St. Scholastica took the largest classification team title, 58-78 over St. Joseph's Baton Rouge.
  • Benton junior Kailtin Flattman was also under 19 on the course, running 18:55.5 for the 4A win, more than a minute up on second place Sarah Jones' 20:06.5.  Jones got the scoring started for 4A team winner Ruston, which scored 35 points to top St. Michael's 52.
