The Dike-New Hartford Invite at Dike provided one of the best races of the season. Unfortunately, it went against the Iowa Falls-Alden/AGWSR Cadets. Still, the girls and boys each grabbed a medal to go along with their ninth and 14th team placings respectively.
The featured match-up came in the girls race as third ranked in Class 1A Aplington-Parkersburg took the team title over number eight in 3A Charles City and second-rated in 1A Denver. Hudson, ranked seventh in 1A, finished third. Starmont (6th 2A), D-NH (13th 2A) and North Linn (14th 1A) were also in the field.
