Led by Malliet, Shoreland placed second in the nine-team boys standings with 139.5 points, behind only Martin Luther’s 172. St. Joseph, meanwhile, was fourth with 80 points.

In the nine-team girls standings, Shoreland was fourth with 109.5 points and St. Joseph was eighth with 17. Burlington Catholic Central won the girls team title with 140.5 points.
