Ellis’ score was good enough to earn the top spot among individual qualifiers for the finals. She’ll compete at Forest Akers West in East Lansing next weekend.

Ellis qualified for the finals last season and finished 23rd overall.

Alpena shot a team score of 452 and tied for seventh as a team. Gianna Bolda shot a 108 for Alpena. Brianna Boyk shot a 120. Rebekah Carlson shot 138. And Mykenize Klimczak rounded out the team with a 142.
