The Emery High Spartans capped off a successful season by finishing fifth in the two-day affair. Emery shot a 707 team score as they trailed Layton Christian and Rowland Hall. South Summit shot a 720 and finished sixth.
McKlane Allred finished the season by leading the team in scoring with a 171 score shooting an 88 the opening day and an 83 the second day. Teammate Jordan Fuller finished with a 172 as he shot an 87 and an 85. Tyeray Migliori finished with a 178 after shooting a 91 and an 87. Kyler Farley's score counted for the Spartans on Wednesday, a 94, and Mark Debry's score counted on Thursday for Emery, an 87.
