They were led by Sophomore Dylan Sequeira who also earned the title of Individual District Champion finishing 1st overall. Sophomore Keaton Strait followed suit finishing 6th with Senior John Ward 8th, Senior Houston Bailey took 9th and Senior Josh Slocum routing the top 5 with a 10th place finish.
