Sarah Billingsley picked up where she left off last season – at the top of the standings. Billingsley crossed the finish line first overall with a winning time of 18:56.

Teammate Meredith Maier was second overall followed by Rachel Billingsley in seventh and Ashley Sedler in ninth. Madeline Maier rounded out the scoring for OA with a 34th place finish.
