They easily beat out second place Pinckney with 55 points and third place Chelsea with 57.
The one-two finish by Owen Huard and Nathan Larson helped power the Dreadnaughts to the title.
Huard finished in 15:45.6, while Larson wasn’t far behind in second with a time of 15:52.
Seth Read continues to be a strong third runner for Dexter and finished 6th in 16:21.6, while William Buller continues a late season surge with some impressive times, finishing eighth in 16:27.9.
Conor Kolka was 11th in 16:45.6, Finnegan Bell 12th in 16:47.9, and Nathan Gariepy 26th in 17:20.8.
The Dreadnaughts will take part in a very tough D1 Regional at DeWitt Friday.
Along with 3rd ranked Dexter, #1 Brighton, #7 Ann Arbor Skyline, and #15 Pinckney are all at the Regional. The top three teams advance. if anyone has a top 5 runner slip, a very good team will be missing the state finals.
