Dock had five total finishers at the Curtis Arboretum meet hosted by Jenkintown on Tuesday, including the first race of the season for Marlyse Giesbrecht and Sam Anderson.
Bobby Jo Dodds led the girls with a second-place finish. The senior ran 23:26, more than a full minute better than her time on the same course a year ago.
Giesbrecht made her return from injury to hang with Dodds throughout the hilly course. The senior co-captain ran 23:28, and was only 11 seconds off her time from a year ago in spite of just resuming her training.
Anderson completed her first race with a top-20 finish. The sophomore posted a debut time of 33:41 for 19th place to give Dock a third female finisher.
Daniel Ringenberg led the way for the boys. The senior captain ran 18:12, a 23-second improvement over his time a year ago. He placed seventh overall in the race, and overtook a competitor that had run quicker than him a week ago.
Aaron Sensenig placed 11th. The sophomore, who is splitting time between training and gearing up for the lead role in the school musical, ran 19:38.
As Dock heads into its academic mini-term, Ringenberg is scheduled to race Saturday at the Foundation Invitational in Hershey, the site of the state championship race in November.
