14-year-old female phenom Frankie Harrer who made a statement this season with her unmatched competitive record and accomplishments, placed runner-up in the Open Girls final but handily collects the conference title on the strength of her 8 season victories in the division. Harrer crushed the all-time season wins record posting 40 victories in the 2011-12 season.
