It was a classic case of irresistible forces meeting in the girls 5A Idaho State championships at Freeman Park in Idaho Falls. Junior Nicole Nielson of Borah came into the meet undefeated after victories in the Silverwood, Caldwell, Tiger-Grizz, Firman & Puma Invitationals, aside from winning the Boise City Championship & her regional. She had defeated a cast of excellent runners all season especially at the Bob Firman Invitational. Kinsey Gomez of Coeur d’ Alene had kept a bit of a lower profile yet still had victories in the Sandpoint, Farragut & Post Falls Invitationals. Something had to give and on this day it was Nielson, who lost her first race of the season, as Gomez ran away to a 7 second margin with an excellent time of 17:56. The Boise girls, currently ranked #4 in the Northwest, easily won their third straight title with a 59 - 97 verdict over Eagle. Boise was led Liz Bandon, Sarah Olson & Anne Lovelace who finished 6th through 8th.

In the 4A division Megan Bartlett of Sand Point, who has faced one the two 5A runners virtually all year swept the individual title, while Bishop Kelly won its 5th straight championship. Bishop Kelly was led by Codi Gifford.

Eric FitzPatrick of Boise continued his winning ways defeating John Coyle & Cody Helbling of Lake City to claim the 5A title. Twins Falls edged Boise by 3 points to claim the team triumph. Aaron Jenkins of Century won the individual title defeating David Fillmore of Burley, while Preston defeated Hillcrest for the 4A team title.
