Apple Valley team held onto their first place Net position, second place overall, and third place position for gross points. It was not a bad day, as the team split points with Lakeview, straight down the middle. Lakeview earned 54 points, as did Apple Valley. That was total points. Apple Valley grabbed a few more points in the net side of things, but scores were pretty even.
