In the Frontier Athletic Conference, the Panthers traveled to Chillicothe and were led by Connor Collins with games of 232 and 236 and Jake Manbevers with a 203.

In the baker portion of the match, the Panthers had games of 213, 202 and 176 for what head coach Ron Amore Sr. called a nice 591 total. Miami Trace went on to defeat Chillicothe.
