Knights senior Eric Wooten led Midland with his 10th-place finish in 17:23.
"I feel really good about my race," Wooten said "A lot of people kind of went out a little fast, I thought. I was really trying to run my own race and not get pulled out. Through the race I tried to work my way up and tried to pick a person off at a time."
Midland Coach Chris Parsons said it was pleasing to see his boys run together, with the team's top seven runners finishing in the top 31.
"Our boys ran as a pack," he said. "On any given day it's like flipping a coin who's going to be number one, and we ran tough."
Winfield ran strong as well behind the solid performances of Generals sophomore R.J. Weiford (fourth, 17:04) and freshman Braxton McMillion (11th, 17:24).
Capital senior Marshall Sharp also placed among the top 10 individuals in ninth place, with a personal record of 17:20. Fellow Cougars runner Michael Ruhnke placed 33rd in 18:20.
While the AAA boys completed the race with threatening weather conditions, the AAA girls did not finish before a thunderstorm dumped rain upon the course. The girls completed their race, but by the end, heavy rain and lightning forced runners and spectators alike to find cover.
Despite the tough conditions, the Winfield girls finished second, behind only Thomas Worthington, led by McMillion. It was a balanced effort, though, as five different Generals placed in the top 16 runners. Beyond McMillion, Rachael Englund (sixth, 20:39) and Barkley Castro (seventh, 20:52) also placed in the top 10, with Alyssa Rittinger (12th, 21:07) and Darian Wikel (16th, 21:35) also contributing solid performances.
Zoey Chapman paced host Midland in 26th place.
In the afternoon A-AA girls race, Mary Richardson, of Newark Catholic (Ohio), won in 19:49. Ravenswood junior Hailey Miller placed fifth in 21:02. Philip Barbour edged Newark Catholic for the team title.
Bridgeport's Abe Merinar turned in the fastest time of the day in the A-AA boys race with a first-place finish of 16:24. Merinar's run paced Bridgeport to a first-place finish ahead of Fairmont Senior.
Buffalo sophomore Hayden Harrison claimed seventh place with a time of 17:06. Charleston Catholic senior Caden McClanahan finished 16th in 17:55, while Jon Sandy, of Teays Valley Christian placed 19th in 18:11.
