In the third of three rounds, East scored 340 points, securing the win over Olathe Northwest with a score of 371 and Olathe East with a score of 386. Though they were down by nine points, they came back for the win.

Senior Alex Maday, with a score of 87, will be third on the second team, and freshman Teagan Noblit, who scored 91, will be sixth on the second team.
