4th - Cole Gilsdorf, Border West 83.
5th - Traeton Nelson, Ashby 83.

WCA Knights coach Kraig Hunter said, "I feel it was a gritty performance by our guys playing in winds gusting to 30 mph. You had to grind and keep fighting knowing everyone in the field was going to have some tough holes in that wind. It was nice to get four medalists and Peyton Hanson was right there as well with a 10th place finish shooting an 86."
The Quad County girls won the girls team title, WCA was second, New Testament Christian third and Hillcrest fourth. The six teams did not have complete teams. There were 23 total girls competing.
