Lance Davis was twenty-seventh. Tanner Hensley was thirtieth. Matt Brignon was eightieth. Lexton Sly was one hundred thirty third. Coach Gary Billingsley said the Hornets competed against schools from every class and showed that they belonged there.

Jolee Fox was sixth at 13:15. Lainy Burnett finished sixty seventh. Coach Billingsley said the Lady Hornets competed and improved.
