In the 16-18 age division, the round of the day belonged to Gainesville High Red Elephant Nathan Williams, who shot an all-time tournament low round of 64, which included nine birdies. Williams' two-day total of 139 was three shots clear of first round leader Spencer Ralston. Ralston had back-to-back rounds of 71 for a total of 142, 2-under par. Hunter Young and Robert Shaw finished in a tie for third with 2 day totals of 147.

The winner in the girls 14-18 age division was Morgan Reece. Reece had a fine second round 79 to finish at 163 and two shots ahead of Allison Crenshaw (85-80 -- 163). Third place went to Ashleigh Bishop (86-83 -- 169)
