"We finished no more than 4 shots out of first place in 5 out of the 7 matches and recorded 1 win. There was a total of 16 shots between CV and us for the entire season. We had 3 kids make the All-NTL teams and 1 miss by three shots. We're looking forward to District play later this week and are looking forward to next season."

Junior Ben Barnett tied for 2nd overall with a round of 76 and junior Brandyn Tuttle was right behind him in 4th with a 78. Junior Taynton Repard and sophomore Joseph Propheta both shot rounds of 86 to tie for 9th overall. Rounding out the Hornets were sophomore Ty Morral with an 89 and freshman Brock Hamblin with a 96.

After the match Barnett, Tuttle, and Repard were named to the NTL All-Star team. Barnett and Tuttle were both 1st team selections while Repard was a 2nd team pick.
