The junior-high girls competed as well and the team finished in 13th place out of 15 teams. Alivia Traversa once again led the team with a 42nd-place finish and a time of 15:23 over the two-mile course. Makayla Marlin finished just behind Traversa with a 44th-place finish and a time of 15:25 while Constance Stewart finished in 68th-place with a time of 16:33. Other scorers for the young Reds included Ashlyn Rose (78th, 17:38) and Lily Fleming (79th, 18:03).
