The Owls carded a 374 as a team, continuing to make strides as the season runs. Laken Waskom led the Owls with an 86 and was followed closely by Bridget Marshall, who had an 87.

Brownstown did not complete the meet until well into the evening. Ashlyn Fox led the Braves with a 103, who carded a 437 for the meet as a team.
