Scoring error makes Raiders second

Ten points were omitted from the Southern Wells Raiders’ score. With the correction, the Raiders and Adams Central Jets switched places. The Raiders moved up to second and the Jets slipped to third. The actual team scores now are Fremont 135.5, Southern Wells 123, Adams Central 118, Canterbury 41, Monroe Central 29.5, Daleville 10.
