The Darts’ 604 total was 20 strokes behind Brighton and Lone Peak, who finished 1-2 after a one-hole playoff to determine the state champion.
Mason Cook finished the team effort by shooting 79-84 for the tournament.
The Vikings’ sixth place finish as led by Kelton Hirsch, who followed a first-day 70 with a second-day 77 for a 147 total. Hirsch tied with Godfrey for 11th in individual scoring.
