Girls:

The story of the 4A girls was who WASN"T there. Two time defending team champion Natrona had three girls come down with food poisoning and couldn't compete. One of them was Eryn Ellis who had won several tournaments this fall and could've been a contender for the title. In the end, though, it was a Natrona golfer that was #1. Caitlyn Skavdahl beat last year's champ Kalle Lunsford of Evanston by one stroke. Evanston won the team title, which is only their second ever. The other one happened in 1988.
