Other placers were included 2 freshman phenoms in Corbin Platt (3rd) and Cal Christiansen (4th). Cole Sederholm and Weston Warr also placed 5th, while the team finished 6th overall.

The girls qualified all 5 to the state championships this year, and placed 3 of the 5. Mikayla Arrington just missed the podium this year, and Gabby Arnold just came up short, but will battle back next season to reach the podium at the state championships.
