The Aegis team of Eric Bernal, Chris Wolf, Joe Orsua and Manual Jacquez won Second Place in net scoring; and Third Place net was won by Michael McGinnis, Brian Hunt, Armando Zambrano and Jim Hopper with Team Hunt.

The prize of Closest to the Pin on Hole No. 2 was won by Brian Haworth, while Jack Beguhl won Closest to the Hole No. 7. Derek Larson was the winner on Hole No. 13 and Ernie Toscano earned the win on Hole No. 17. Chris White had the longest drive of the day while Josh Keller earned kudos for the straightest drive.
