The best net in the boys went to Jack Walker from Feilding High School with a net 65, and the best girls net went to Lily Griffin from Palmerston North Girls' High with a 70.
The teams net competition was won for the second year in row by the Feilding High School team of Ethan Ward, Jayleb Schwamm, Jack Walker and Liam Magill.
