Darien's strong team performance at the meet sealed its victories over the other runners. Darien defeated Stamford (15-50), Ridgefield (15-47) and St. Joseph (15-50).
The Blue Wave had the first five runners to cross the finish line. Senior captain Michael Johnston and freshman Alex Ostberg finished together in 17:17.

Sophomores Marshall Huffman and Peter Kreuch finished fifth and seventh in 18:07 and 18:12, and captain Eli Converse finished eighth in 18:13.
"It was humid so times weren't great. That's okay. We just wanted to go in, take care of business and get out," Darien coach Tyson Kaczmarek said.
"We had a very strong showing today," Coe said. "I'm very proud of everyone's performances. "
