MARSEILLES, Ill. (WIFR) - Without an IHSA state meet to look forward to next week, the boys left it all on the course on Saturday at the Class 1A Seneca Sectional. Rockford Christian showed why it was the team to beat, winning the team title by 37 points.

The Royal Lions had five of their runners finish in the top 25, led by seniors D’Artagnon Beaver and Stephen Thomas. Beaver, the Oregon Regional champion, took second overall while Thomas placed eighth. It’s their first sectional championship since the team finished second in the state in 2017.

Amboy out of the NUIC also had a strong showing. The Clippers took third as a team.
