The Boys Town Invite was the Blair cross-country team's third meet in eight days.
As a result, coach Carson Norine rested some of his top varsity runners and gave their BHS teammates an opportunity to compete. The Bears finished third in the girls' team standings and fourth in boys' hierarchy.

On the boys' side, the Bears' Caleb Funk made a mid-race push from the middle of the pack to ninth. He finished it in 19:08.72, while teammate Calin O'Grady was 10th in 19:19.13. Michael Amandus was 17th, Peter Clarke was 18th, and Tannon Bellamy and Zack Anderson were 19th and 20th, respectively.
BHS' top junior varsity finishers at Boys Town were Kade Ryden and Paige Dykstra. Ryden earned 18th in the boys' race, clocking in at 20:48.42, while Dykstra was 77th in the girls' race at 29:24.3.
