The new 5K course for the state championships at Old Settlers Park produced fast times throughout the morning Saturday.

In the 5A boys race, 19 runners broke 16 minutes.

“It was tough. Everyone was fast,” said Northwest senior Tucker Dunn. “You expect it. It’s best of the best.”

Dunn and the Texans tried to keep pace, finishing 12th as a team at the University Interscholastic League cross country championships in Round Rock. Northwest finished with 256 points. Lovejoy won the division with 59.

“We ran OK. It’s an experience if you haven’t been down here. It can be overwhelming,” said Northwest coach Josh Allen. “We competed well. We talked about it. You’ve got to get down here and get that experience. I was glad for our seniors that we made it.”

Dunn was one of four seniors on the course for Northwest, including Colton Kelly, Jarred O’Connor and Tyler Allen.

Sophomore Jacob Webster paced the Texans, finishing 42nd in 16:21. Dunn ran 16:33 for 62nd.

Freshman Joseph Thomas took 90th in 16:52. Carson Hughes turned in a 17:11 for 111th. O’Connor was the fifth Texan in 113th in 17:14.

Kelly ran 17:21 for 119th and Allen 17:51 for 137th.
