The American Fork boys shouldn't underscore the importance of their win at the Nebo Invitational on Saturday.
The Cavemen won the meet for the fourth time in five seasons at Salem Hills High School, and that could prove to be key because it's often come in the middle of the calendar for the squad as it prepares for crucial postseason meets.
Last year marked the first time in four seasons the Cavemen did not win the meet.
But Saturday the Cavemen were back to their old selves, placing its first three runners through the tape before its fourth and fifth came through in the top 10 as the squad scored a dominant 23 points.
It was one of the team's better performances all-time on the 3-mile course, reminiscent of its 2011 finish, and is a good indication of why the team is situated back into the national conversation.
Ranked No. 7 on the MileSplit50, American Fork saw senior Dalton Brems log the second fastest performance on the course all-time in 15:20.40, while teammate Luke Grundvig had the third fastest effort in 15:20.80. Senior Carson Clinger was third for the squad in 15:31.20, helping usher an impressive 15:37 average for the squad and a 39-second split from its first to fifth runners.
Second-place Herriman wasn't really in contention and finished with 57 points.
