Michael Sisk won Junior AA Singles Champion and Junior 28 Gauge Event Champion. Alex Tanner won Junior Gold 28 Gauge Event Champion and also shot a perfect 100 out of 100 on the first day of the singles event. Peyton Hargrave and Brandon Sisk each shot their personal best individual scores in the singles event.
