Davison, who missed the last two weeks with a knee injury, earned all-conference honors by placing in the top 10.
“It feels like this season has been going by really slow, but getting top 10 is a big confidence booster,” Davison said. “The cooler weather made it feel a lot better today.”
Displacers were Abigal Nolen and Kiunna Shaw.
The JV girls took the top 5 medals led by Kamden Hawkins in 26:03.59 in the No. 1 slot, No. 2 Brianne Galindo in 25:99.44 and No. 3 Nakaya Frost in 27:31.46.Tamia Swindell ran a 27:55.887 for fourth and the No. 5 slot was claimed by Delilah McBride in 28:03.27.

Wagner earned all-conference honors in just his second season of running.
“It feels great to get all-conference. This is my second year of running and I’m surprised that I’ve been able to do this well. I think it’s mainly because I had Josh (Robinson) last year who was kind of training me up,” Wagner said.
The junior said he felt comfortable in the conference meet.
“This was the first time that I’ve been able to shut down my mind and focus on the race itself,” he said.
Samuel Blough (19:51.17), Ira Bell (20:25/28) and Kaiden Harrison (20:34.67) teamed with displacers Toby Phillips and Riley McMahon.
