Zeke Rasmussen (1st) and Liam Nichols (2nd) went 1-2 in the 10&U boys, Blaque Secor (1st), Lily Hsieh and Evie Rupp (tied for 2nd), and Meah McCallum (3) swept the 11-12 girls, Hayden Rasmussen was 2nd in the 11-12 boys, Logan Fox (2nd) and Kyan Harnum (3rd) placed in the 13-14 boys, Jessica Williamson (1st) and Victoria Schachle (3rd) placed in the 15&O girls, and Ryan Korhonen was 3rd in the 15&O boys.
