Analysis: Aagard completed six races during the 2022-2023 season and all of them were exceptional performances on cross country courses across the nation.
In a head-to-head battle against American Fork at the Utah 6A State Championships, Aagard solidified the victory with a 5K time of 17:26 and won the title by 21 seconds. Aagard led Lone Peak to the team title with 30 points to American Fork's 57.
