“Even with the windy conditions the girls all played pretty decent with Anna Collins coming home with the medalist honors,” said East Union coach Dave Campbell. “Kate Sutton also had a good night shooting a personal best so far in her freshman year.”

On the boys side, East Union shot a season’s best round of 173.

Christopher Case edged Matt McGuire for medalist honors, as each had a 43 with Case winning the card off playoff.

Sanden Cheers also had a 43.
