The Minico and Ridgevue boys finished 180 holes tied at 600. But Minico snatched the 4A boys team trophy with a sudden-death playoff victory with four birdies for the first team championship in program history. Over the past four years Minico has won the 3rd place, 2nd place and 4th place State Championship title. This 1st place Championship win is something that they have strived to accomplish. The seniors choose not to attend their senior trip to Disney over this past weekend just so that they could ensure a possibility of this win.

Minico also snapped Bishop Kelly’s run of individual champions at four years as Gage Skaggs, Spokane Community College commit rallied from two strokes back entering the day. He shot a second-round 67 to finish at 137, overtaking Bishop Kelly’s Alec Dykas, who fell from first to fourth with a second-round 75 to finish at 143.

Back to back, the Twin Falls girls finished 1st for the second year in a row with 667 strokes. Twin Falls, Brinlee Stotts, shot 76-77—153 winning the girl’s individual champion (won playoff hole).
