Lincoln marched straight to the championship round. Washington Orange lost to Lincoln but worked their way back through the losers bracket to take on Lincoln in the championship. In the end Lincoln took home the title and Washington Orange placed second.
It was the senior-powered Washington boys who went straight to the championship. Yankton, who started the day out in fourth, lost to Brookings in the second set of Baker rounds, but battled back to take on Washington in the championship. The top-seeded Washington won it all and Yankton took the runner-up spot.
