Sophomores Finley Houck and Abi Chishungu also placed. Houck finished 7th and Chisungu finished in 8th. 

The girls placed 25th overall with help from wins by juniors Libby Norton and Aly Fellores, and sophomore Ellie Van Horn.

Coach Tricia Norton commented, “This weekend was equally as difficult as anything we will see at the state tournament. 
"Each bracket had many state placers, some from multiple states. Our girls should be so proud of themselves for stepping up to this incredible challenge.”
This week the Stormray girls will be in action at Marysville Pilchuck on Friday Night.
