Other Oldenburg runners competing in the 71-runner field were Bobbie Wagner (59th) and Jackie Unkrich (65th).

The second place Lady Bulldogs were led by sophomore Kelsey Gausman in seventh place. Gausman finished the 5K race in a time of 20:36.

Senior Hannah Lehfeldt was 10th overall for Batesville with a time of 20:55.
