The Mansfield Hornets captured the second spot with a score of 218.

OA and Mansfield topped a field that consisted of Bishop Feehan, Catholic Memorial, Franklin, King Philip, Sharon, Walpole, and Wellesley and the top four scores from each team counted.

In individual competition for OA, Sam Minsky (low medalist) and Nick Carter were among the eight players who advanced to the individual championship.
