TRI-CITY AREA — Brendan Pfeifer logged a 16:42.8 clocking en route to second and Chris Paluch posted a 17:55.2 time on the way to a 10th, helping lead the Capac boys' cross country team to a fourth-place finish last Saturday at a Division 3 regional hosted by Bad Axe High School.

Caro (53 points) was the meet champion. Macomb Lutheran North took second, aided by an 84-point output, and Cass City tallied 90 for third.

Those three schools, as well as anyone ranking among the top-15 finishers, advance to this Saturday's Division 3 state finals at the Brooklyn-based Michigan International Speedway. That race is scheduled to get underway at 11:30 a.m.

Capac pulled up fourth, thanks to an 84-point total. They were followed by Armada (118 points), May-ville (159), Bad Axe (162), Almont (187), Imlay City (200), Otisville-Lakeville (270) and Marlette (286).
