Bellefield Comprehensive of Jamaica opened up an early lead, but by the second exchange Zach Vrohvac had put Albemarle in front. Sean Pohorence of Morris Hills moved into the lead for the last handoff. Jamaica College’s Waquar Decosta briefly caught the two leaders, but was left behind with 200 to go.  Anthony Kostelac showed some wheels down the stretch to pull away from Morris Hills’ Liam Tansey, giving Albemarle the victory, 7:30.67 to 7:31.60 — both teams under the national high school record. Previous record — 7:32.89 — was set in 2002 by Auburn HS (WA).

Check out these splits: Garrett Bradley (1:55.43), Zach Vrhovac (1:50.57), Luke Noble (1:55.34), Anthony Kostelac (1:49.33)
