For the third consecutive year, Osage's Taylor Hayes advances to state play.

Her teammate, Devin Henderson, finished 42 over par with a score of 114 on the day, a score which closely resembles that of her sectional performance of 2012 (36th, +40).
Becca Lasson of Eldon finished 30th in the Class 1, Sectional 2 tournament with a score of 111 (+37), narrowly missing the cutoff for the state tournament.
Camdenton's Brianna Knopf and Amber Theobald both fell short of advancing to the state tournament, as Knopf shot a 107 (+37) and 110 (+40), respectively, on the day to finish in 47th and 49th place.
