There was a clear sky over CPA Airport Field  this time around and it seemed to have worked in Saipan International School's favor.

In the boys division, Agape Christian School broke the ice with Peter Hu completing the course in first place with a time of 00:20:41.

But SIS’s Rex Pixley finished second while school-mates Jimin Woo, Charles McDonald and Andrew Sablan were in 4th, 5th and 6th places to give their school momentum.

SIS’s remaining runners soon reached the finish line with Sean Lee and Yunwoo Nam in 9th and 13th places.

Agape’s David Zhao, Abraham Zhu and Peter Shen finished the course in 3rd, 7th and 8th places while Timothy Yu and Caleb Dai claimed 11th and 12th places. But it wasn’t enough to overtake SIS in the team standings.  

Agape was second over-all while Mount Carmel School took third place.

MCS’s Poon Skyler was in  10th place while fellow Knights Robin Alvarez, Jihwan Ryu, Mark Jainier Chavez and Vince Salvador were in 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th places.

Marianas High School did not have enough students to join the team event, but  John Lloyd Dela  finished the course.

Girls division

In the high school girls division, Agape Christian School was in full control with its six runners crossing the finish line one after the other.

However, it was SIS’s Tiana Cabrera who finished first with ease once again, clocking in at 00:22:32. Agape’s Emma Pang, Eunice Xu, Grace Shi, Elizabeth Xu, Vivian Wu and Sally Wu then filled the next six slots to secure overall first place for their school in the team standings with SIS in second place.

SIS’s other runners were Linxi Cai, Jinnie Thompson and Pyper Liske-Clark who finished 8th, 11th and 12th.

The girls of Marianas High School did not participate in last week's opener, but made up for their absence this time around as they claimed 3rd place.

MHS’s Allyssya Angeles came in at 9th place while Jerlyn Castillo, Kina Rangamar and Sedrei Camacho placed 13th, 14th and 17th.

Mount Carmel School took 4th overall with runners Aleia Santos, Erin Frink, Fiona Bucalig, Kaia Travilla and Amaya Grace Reyes.
