No. 3-ranked Grand Blanc won the team championship with a 309. Sixth-ranked Midland was second with 314 and Rochester Adams shot 319 to grab the third and final team berth in the state meet.

Flushing was fourth with 321, followed by Rochester 322, Troy 326, Traverse City West 330, Troy Athens 338, Clarkston 343, Saginaw Heritage 348, Lapeer 352 and Midland Dow 365.
