Also placing first for North were Hunter Walsh, Drew Alexander, Austin Cunningham and Houston Knight. Placing second were Caleb Alexander, Zach Lobb and Don Carmen. Claiming third place was Caymen Robertson, Luke MacNaughton, Chandler Peterson and Duncan Connelly. Rounding out the medalists in fourth place were Seth Tettleton, Al Sylvester and Bailey Byers.
