Braden Southwick from Martin County High School and Gabriel Gonzalez from Treasure Coast High School tied for first place in the individual competition.

The Martin County High School team comprised of Shane Berhoff, Allison Dobbins, Ella Kate France, and Braden Southwick earned first place in the team competition—with the St. Edwards High School team comprised of Oscar Lindenthal, Ellie MacMullan, Alexa Soderman, and Rosy Yang taking the second-place honors.
