Snyder shot an 8-over 80 on Day 1 before closing with a 79 on Tuesday.

Leading a foursome of South golfers, Denning ended the tourney with a 163, tying for 34th place individually. 

He had daily scores of 83 and 80.

Another freshman making his first states appearance, Clayman finished tied for 43rd with daily scores of 87 and 79 for a 166 total.

Not too far behind Atkins was the team's senior captain, who shot 76 and then 75 for a two-day total of 151.

Hodges' third-place finish was the highest of his career in three states appearances. The recent Fayetteville State University commit also picked up a second 2A Men’s Golf Championship Sportsmanship Award.
