Kendall Wiebe led the team, finishing in 25th place.

He ran the 5k course in 18 minutes, 41 seconds, and improved his time from last year’s meet by 38 seconds.

Wiebe’s younger brother Sheldon, finished the course in 28th place with a time of 18:45.

He also improved his time by a margin of 50 seconds.

Aaron Topham crossed the finish line in 18:45 and placed 29th.

Josh Klarmann came in 55th with a time of 19:42, while Curtis Frederick was 65th with a time of 20:02.
