After a competitive two days Champions in both the Girls and Boys divisions were crowned, with Gracie Song of Waxhaw, N.C. winning on the girls side, while Max Cranford of Newton, N.C. was the boys overall champion. 

 

After a first round 79, Song found herself just off the pace, but in the final group of the day with a front row ticket for a chance to make some noise. On her outward nine Sunday, Song collected seven pars and two bogeys en route to a 38. 

 

When making the turn towards home Song turned it up a notch, bridies on 11, 14, and 15 helped Song fire a 2-under-par, 35 on that crucial back nine, which was good enough for a one shot victory over the field, and a second straight win in this event. Her final round total of Even Par 73 was also the low round of the tournament

 

For the Boys it was the steady play of Cranford that defined the tournament. An opening round 3-under-par, 69 had him just two shots back of the lead after the first round and in prime attacking position. 

 

The start of his second round was much of the same, with seven straight pars to open up his Sunday. Birdies on four of his next five propelled Cranford right into the thick of the leaderboard, before a clutch iron shot to just outside three feet on the Par-4 18th saw Cranford tap in for birdie, and earn a one shot victory with a final round 5-under-par, 67. 

 

In the Boys 13-15 Division Talan Harrison of Kannapolis, N.C. finished at 7-under-par for the tournament, after impressive rounds of 69 and 68. Harrison finished with a flurry as well, with birdies on 14, 16, and 17 to finish his final round and take control of the division.
