Hannah Bergsnev of Badger-Greenbush-Middle River was competing at the junior varsity level based on her season average on June 15 but saved her best for the championship shoot. She busted a perfect 100, joining teammate Zach Evans, who was varsity high gun, as the only two in the field that day to shoot a perfect score.
