The story of the this year's championship might have been the weather. The high temperatures and humidty certainly took a toll on all of the participants.

Coming out on top in the boy's division was Walker Jones of Sumter, SC. Walker survived a 5-hole playoff over Ian Faulconer.

The girl's title was won by Jordan Guyton of Columbia, SC. Jordan who trailed first round leader, Victoria Hall, was able to wrestle away the lead on day 2 and went on to take the champioship by 3 shots.
