The championship was a rematch of the district tournament final. Sehome fought hard to stay in the match, but serves and volleys from Daniel and Faiz were too much for them to handle.

Thanks to a victory in the first round from Emahd Khan, the Shorecrest team was able to secure a 3rd place team title.

The coach is Robert Mann.
