In the U17 girls division, Archbishop Chapelle teammates Jessica Ladd and Sarah Rubi faced off in the championship match, with Ladd prevailing. Ladd was the top seed in the bracket after a qualifying total of 1,022.
Dawson Lavergne defeated top-seeded Mason Blount in the U20 boys final, while Gabrielle Gautreaux defeated Bonnabel’s Alahna DeGruy in the U20 girls championship match.
The under-15 winners were Joseph Lemoine and Jayden Hauck, while Gunner Foret and Alyssa Hunn won the U12 divisions.
