Favorites Win, Surprises Place in Chaska

The Class AA #1-ranked Stillwater High School boys and the #2-ranked Lakeville South girls raced to victories at yesterday's power-packed Victoria Lions Invitational in Chaska.

The Ponies, led by Wayde Hall in 8th-place, outran a surprise challenge from un-ranked Burnsville 82-110. #3-ranked Wayzata was third with 114. #4-ranked Edina and #5 Eden Prairie tied for 4th place with 119.

Wayzata's Josh Thorson, the #1-ranked runner in Class AA, topped 2010 Class AA State Meet runner-up Cole O'Brien of Burnsville 15:20 to 15:23.

In girls' competition, #2-ranked Lakeville South withstood a strong effort from #10-ranked Shakopee, 110 to 113. #5-ranked Wayzata was third with 124; #3 Eden Prairie was fourth with 146.

#1-ranked Class AA individual Maria Hauger swamped the field, running 14:08 and winning by more than 45 seconds.

I think Wayde Hall is a junior. He got 8th place at Victoria Lions so maybe that's where you got the 8??
