Can you explain the scoring? It looks like the Descavish boy finished 6th in the race when looking at the individual results but when listed under team scoring it shows him first. Is this a misprint or is there a different way of scoring it? Thanks.

Yeah, that was my bad. He was the first across the line from those schools that were competing for the team championship. There were other individual runners there that qualified on time alone. It is still one heck of an accomplishment.
