Teams Joe Adams and Isabella Provence, and Seth Cross and Zach Humble completed the weekend undefeated. Instead of facing each other in the finals, the teams walked away as co-champions.

Rebekah Sweyko and Darby Toth were undefeated in the preliminary rounds but lost to Pittsburg in the quarterfinals in a split decision. Chloe Studyvin and Dalton Womeldorff also lost to a Pittsburg team in the quarterfinals.

In the novice division, Levi Bin and Carlee Studyvin finished in 5th place, Caleb Hopkins and Connor Mason in 7th, and three teams tied for 8th, including Kaden Kiwan and Conner Parker, Emma Faith Humble and Brooklyn Lyons, and Madi Toth and Mark Adams.

“This was a difficult weekend for novice because all were trying new cases,” coach Amber Toth said. “And all of them walk away with at least two wins.”
