The time was a second faster than the course best, set by Agoura's Bryan Dameworth in 1989.
Wilson's teammate, Emanuel Azizi, finished sixth in 15:31.
Hoover's Margarito Casillas won the Division I senior race in 14:33, the second-fastest time of the meet.
Sophomore Amy Skieresz (17:05), junior Kay Nekota (17:38) and senior Kristie Camp (18:00) of Agoura finished first, second and third in the girls' Division II race to lead the Chargers to victory.
Agoura, the two-time defending Division I state champion, totaled 28 points, followed by El Toro with 128 and Newport Harbor with 139.
Junior Allison Kaz (sixth in 18:34) and senior Tiffany Burt (14th in 19:19) rounded out Agoura's scoring runners.
