The team of five including Jake Hierlmeier, Nick Mrdutt, Nathan Mrdutt, Zach Schemionek and Garret Schemionek scored a total of 702 after a first round of 357 and a second round of 345.
The 1999 team, which was the last to make a state appearance finished in fifth place. They were an older team headed by Jeremy Lyons, which says a lot about the potential in this young team in 2013 that consisted of one senior, one junior, a sophomore and two freshmen.
On the 18 hole, par 72 course, Nick Mrdutt finished with a total score of 173 after a first round of 91 and a second of 82. Next was Zach and Garret Schemionek each with a 175, Hierlmeier had a 179 and Nathan Mrdutt wrapped up the two day championship with a 182.
The Toppers juggled back and forth between sixth and seventh place throughout the day on Tuesday as Weyauwega-Fremont was right on their heels, but they ended up finishing just one point behind with a 703 total.
