Longmont squeaked out a win over Pueble County in the CHSAA 3A meet, winning by 20 points. Longmont managed to win the title with only 1 event win, which came in an individual event, even though Pueblo County won 2 relays and 2 individual events. Longmont was able to come away with the title because of their depth across the board. They had 6 A final appearances in the 8 individual events compared to Pueblo County’s 4.
