On Saturday at Caribou High School, the Houlton/GHCA varsity teams took to the rolling hills and trails behind the Caribou athletic fields. The Caribou Invitational features a unique format that offers runners who may not normally win a race during the regular season an opportunity to do so. Each varsity section was split into seven races for the boys and girls and our Houlton/GHCA runners did not disappoint.
The meet was scored by taking a school’s five best finishing places. This resulted in the Houlton girls taking top team honors with eight points over number two John Bapst (12), number three Brewer (20), and number four Caribou (22).
Presque Isle, Foxcroft, Ellsworth, MSSM, Fort Kent, a
nd Old Town also competed, but did not have team scores.
The boys did not post a team score as they do not have enough runners to score to do so. John Bapst was the overall boy meet winners with a score of five, Caribou second scoring 15, third, Old Town (16), fourth, Brewer (21), fifth, Presque Isle (22), sixth, Ellsworth (24), seventh, MSSM (33), and Foxcroft no score.
