Sargent took down Nampa's Afton Silva in the first round 6-4, he then earned a win over Bishop Kelly's Mark Greene in round two to move on to the semifinals.
In the semifinals Sargent defeated Kuna's Braydon Shell by a score of 9-5 to take on Bird. Sargent and Bird have met a couple of times this season and have split each meeting.
