Waunakee Purple took top honors in the 2-ball event with a 71, followed by Waunakee White (73), DeForest Purple (80), Wisconsin Dells (90), Waunakee Black (93) and DeForest Gold (99).

Individually, Waunakee White’s Sydney Grimm led all golfers with an 82. Teammates Aly Kinzel and Izzi Stricker both came away with an 83.
