Bo Morgan — a region qualifier as an individual a year ago — led Beech with a round of 77, and teammate Michael Charles posted a 79.

Tristan Grenead’s 74 led the Buccaneers.

In girls play, Beech’s girls were victorious, finishing 11 strokes better than Macon County thanks to Tessa Myers’ round of 76.
