University High School defeated Flathead High School in a hard fought battle between two
nationally ranked teams. The meet is not run in the normal format. The
varsity competition is composed of seven different flights. The first
flight consists of each team's number seven runner. The next flight
consists of each team's number six runner and so on. University started
out by winning the first flight with Flathead coming in sixth. In the
next race University again won with Flathead coming in third place. The
score was 9 for Flathead and 2 for University. Flathead went on to win
the next four races by wide margins. 

When it came to the final varsity race the score was tied at 13 a piece. 
David Vidal represented Flathead and Max Schmidt represented University. 
As it turned out David Vidal did not run well placing 12th and Max Schmidt ran very well and won the
race. Flathead's top four runners were all under 16:00 minutes with
their fifth runner at 16:02. Flathead's average time of their top five
runners was 15:49 for the three mile course. University High School's
top five had an average time of 15:59 minutes. University showed their
overall depth whereas Flathead may have been a little weak in the first
