Grice took second place with a time of 20 minutes, 12.18 seconds while Ellen checked in third at 20:28.20.
The Highlanders finished with a team total of 75 points, 11 off the pace of meet champion Augusta Prep. The field featured only eight teams. The only other Midlands entry with a full lineup was host Spring Valley. Runners from Dutch Fork, Ridge View and Batesburg-Leesville competed, but none of the three schools fielded full teams.
Ella Bock (23rd, 22:59.03), Harriet Rogers (31st, 23:27.92) and Catherine Ivey (38th, 24:07.38) were Heathwood Hall’s three other scoring runners.
