In 2nd place large school division Nicolas Junior High along with their feeder schools Richman Elementary, Woodcrest Elementary, Pacific Drive Elementary, and Orangethorpe Elementary. This was the first time Nicolas Junior High placed in the sweepstakes category, and they rose to the top with 2nd place. This was not an easy feat, but they were able to make history this tournament!


In 1st place small school division Robert C Fisler for their first time competing as a team, their small but mighty team rose to the challenge and won the small school division.
