William King of Rockhurst and Bryson Oots of Staley tied at the top of the leaderboard at 141. Among southwest Missouri golfers, Kickapoo’s Gaige Lewis finished highest, tied for 14th.

The best COC finish came from Noah Naugle of Nixa, tied for 31st with a 155. Carter Jackson of Ozark shot a 163, two strokes ahead of Frey. Nixa’s Chandler Burch was tied with Frey and two others at 165. Meyer Lively of Nixa, who tied with Frey at districts, finished one stroke behind Frey this week, at 166.
