Valdez scored a 4,401 which was around 700 more than second placed Hutch. Their top shooter was Tiffany Larcom who took the top spot in each event.
Hutch finished runner up in air rifle and in the aggregate score, while Lathrop took second in the smallbore category. Delta, last year's MAC champion, placed fourth overall ahead of West Valley. West Valley's Diana Maxey took second in air with a 574 score, while Kelsey Wade of Lathrop, placed behind Lacrom for the top spot in smallbore.
This is where the season ends for high school rifle, since there isn't a state championship for the sport.
