Boys' Class AA: Stillwater, Thorson Champs

#1-ranked Stillwater completed a wire-to-wire run atop the Class AA boys' cross country rankings with a victory at today's State Meet.

The Ponies scored 92 points to earn the school its fourth Class AA title, and first since 1997.

Burnsville was runner-up with 115 points; Edina was third with 129.

Wayzata senior Josh Thorson won the Class AA individual title, running 15:30 on the St. Olaf College 5K course. Throson, 6th in 2010, used the same late-race downhill where Jamie Piepenburg made her move to seal his comfortable victory.

Riley Macon of Rochester Mayo was runner-up in 15:40; Troy Koivisto of Dassel-Cokato was third with 15:40 as well.
