Score: 46

The Lady Chiefs came up just short in their bid for the Region IV Division I title. Waubonsee finished only four points behind the College of DuPage in the team scoring with 46 points. Four Lady Chiefs earned All-Region honors with Jen Howland leading the way as she has all season. The sophomore placed third overall covering the 5K course in a time of 20:06. Jazmin Zepeda finished fifth, Amanda Lesak came in eighth and Amanda Palmquist placed 14th to each earn All-Region status. Hampered by an injury, sophomore Ashley Leonetti finished 27th overall, running at least a minute off her usual pace. The Chaparrals' fifth runner, Stephany Ruiz-Gonzalez, finished 17th overall to eclipse the Lady Chiefs' team scoring lead to that point and clinch the title for DuPage.
