The Marblehead boys were led by Harrison Kee (16:09, second), Ryan Thompson (16:15, third) and Isaac Gross (16:18, fourth). By finishing in the top eight, all three earned All-Conference honors, according to coach Brian Heenan. 

Will Cerrutti was unable to run in the race, because of a strained calf, but was still named to the All-Conference team thanks to his regular season performance.
