Coach Jimmy Cox said of his team's performance, "We had a strong showing at the state tournament. We finished in third place against a really strong field. Quinn Riley cemented his place as one of our all-time best golfers, and Chase Tickle and Kyle Kushnir each had a stellar round. We were playing a man down due to illness, but the team made no excuses and went out and played some good golf. I was proud of their performance. Quinn, Chase, and fellow senior James Castleman will be missed next year."
