CHILLICOTHE — Club teams from Elmhurst York and St. Charles East captured championships Sunday in the third and final high school division competition of the 2020 XC Championships at Three Sister Park.

The unofficial “state” meet, hosted by Shazam Racing and MileSplit Illinois, concluded with top teams from the largest high schools in the state, or Class 3A competitors.

St. Charles East (Saints XC Club) dominated the boys event, behind the 1-2 finish from teammates Luke Schildmeyer and Micah Wilson. Schildmeyer covered the 5-kilometer course in 15 minutes, 33.02 seconds, as Wilson followed in 15:35.05.

St. Charles East ended with 121 points — 35 fewer than runner-up North Naperville. Elmhurst York (Kroy XC Club) was third (172).

Like the first two days, the girls opened the event with four flights. Elmhurst York put four runners in the top 20 to win the girls team title, led by Michaela Quinn’s sixth-place finish, with 58 points.
