Hamilton senior Vincent Cervantes shot a 4-under-par 32 at the Phoenix Country Club on Tuesday to help lead the Huskies past Brophy 140 to 143 in a rematch of the 2022 Division I state championship where the Broncos cruised to a state championship over Hamilton.

Hamilton has nine state championships with three straight victories over Brophy from 2019 to 2021 and Brophy also has nine state titles, including ones over Hamilton in 2018 and last year. Hamilton also turned Brophy back in 2007.

Cervantes took third place last year, some 13 shots behind state champion Tyler Spielman of Brophy and four shots behind Charlie Palmer. Speilman shot a record 17-under-par 123 to win the 2022 Division I State Championship at the Omni Tucson National and Speilman shot an even 36 on Tuesday. Palmer is now a freshman for Princeton.

Williams Field senior Ben Carr shot a 2-under 34 to take second place on Tuesday as did Perry senior Joe Houghton. Perry took eighth place last year and Williams Field came in 13th place in Division II action.
