When the 2014 News-Herald Cross Country Invitational boys’ race wrapped up Saturday morning, things looked pretty familiar at the top.

For the second consecutive season, Woodhaven came away as the champs at Riverview’s Young Patriots Park and for the second time in as many years the squad’s top runner, Logan Kleam, finished in first place.

The Warriors’ 63 points put them ahead of second-place Anderson (74), as well as Allen Park (95), Roosevelt (98) and Grosse Ile (109).

Kleam’s time of 16 minutes, 18 seconds left him almost 12 seconds ahead of the next runner, Roosevelt’s Dominic Davis (16:31.40). In third for the day was Alec Keaton (16:48.50) of Allen Park, followed by Brett Navarre (16:55.60) in fourth and Woodhaven’s Kory Johnson in fifth (17:11.80). Overall, there were 102 runners who finished on the boys’ side.

Anderson had two top-10 runners, with Anthony Kroll (17:15.70) in sixth and Ryan Sander (17:21.70) in eighth, while Grosse Ile’s Adam Sawicki (17:20.50) finished in between in seventh.

Also with a pair of competitors in the top 10 on Saturday was Summit Academy (195), which finished sixth as a team and had Otto Kasbauer (17:22.10) in ninth and Garrett Novak (17:33.70) in the 10th spot.

Trenton (213) was seventh as a team and its next best runner, after Navarre, was Jonathan Vanpaepeghem (18:51.10) in 37th.
