Rounding out the top five finishers for the Lady Eagles were Kari Longstaff (22:22), who placed 12th, and Megan Caiazzo (22:43), who finished 14th.
In boys’ action, Cocalico went 0-2 in the first meet of the year, losing to both Cedar Crest (21-43) and Hempfield (15-49).
Individually, Ryan Conner was the lone Eagle in the top 10 as he finished seventh with a time of 17:26. Dominic Rey (17:31) was 11th for Cocalico while Josh Lorah (18:45) was 23rd and Austin Aletriz (19:26) was 29th.
