Other team scores included Courtney Hargis and Brylee Hendrix turning in scores of 110, Erissa Robertson a 111, and Alice Mauney a 118.

Earning All-district honors was Breckyn Shewmake carding a 101, followed by Erissa Robertson with a 106, Courtney Hargis with a 110, Alice Mauney with a 111 and Brylee Hendrix with a 118. Coach Golightly stated “the greens were very difficult to read and most of our strokes came from putts. This was reflected in the cutoff for attending state, which was ultimately 105.” On the team side Osage came out on top with a team score of 358 and Hallsville took the second spot with 427. Unfortunately, Southern Boone posted a team score of 428, missing the team cut by a single stroke. The overall district winner was Hanna Maschhoff from Osage, firing a 78.
