Seventh grader Parker Rutherford led Warren Central with an 80, while eighth grader Will Burnett shot an 82. Both played brilliantly, except on No. 10 where each triple-bogeyed.

Freshman Dylan Bradley shot an 83 and eighth-grader Kade Oldenburg shot an even 100. Todd Davidson, also an eighth grader, shot a 108, but only the top four scores are counted.
