Chad McCann, a junior, and Otto Voettiner IV, a freshman, ended up tied for 10th place in the state finals at the Meadowbrook Country Club, matching their scores at 152 over 36 holes played in two days. South County's David Ross also held the same score. Meanwhile, Adam Szwed of Woodbridge put up the best numbers for Prince William County at the tournament with a two-day score of 149 (76, 73).
