May River’s Nick Nelson was the runner-up with a 37, finishing two shots off the pace, and the trio of Conrad Gall, Landry Williams, and Conner Ouellette carded matching 41s to tie for ninth and help the Sharks snag a share of second place.

Jack Sumner shot 39 to tie for fourth and lead Beaufort, while teammates Jack Lubkin and Gus Christian tied for seventh with 40s, and Simon McAlister tied for ninth with a 41. Hilton Head High (170) finished fourth with Nolan Hawkins (39) leading the way in a tie for fourth and Ben Batson cracking the top 10 with a 41. Battery Creek was fifth with Michael Freeman leading the way with a 56.
