In the boys 16-17 division Wil Sigwarth came out on top shooting a 78. Sigwarth’s secret to managing the South Course, “I just kept going.

For the girls 16-17 division Ava Kalb shot an 88 to win. “My main thoughts were to stay positive, focus, and not get distracted by the heat.” McKenna Stackis took a close second with an 89 and Celia Turner finished third with a 95.
Jonah Oberfoell finished in first place shooting a 78. “I was just trying to hit the ball in the fairway because it’s a pretty tight course all around.” Bock Mueller took second with an 81 and Camden Flack shot an 86 for a third-place finish.
In the girls 14-15 Natalie Fangman was the winner, shooting a 56. “My mindset throughout the round was focusing on the next hole or next shot. It was getting a little hot out there, so focusing on finishing helped my round.” Sarah Winter finished second with a 74.
Henry Thier and Cal Martineau both shot a 44, but Thier won the scorecard playoff to take home the first-place plaque for the boys 12-13 division. “Overall, I think I played pretty decent.

Elin Mueller took the win in the girls 12-13 division. Mueller shot a 41. “My game plan was to stay safe. The course got narrow a lot, so I decided to lay-up to give myself better looks.” Eve Skrocki shot a 45 for second place and Addie Splinter shot a 49 for third.
