Grand Canyon University won the competition with an event score of 81. McKendree University was second (75.9), Drury University placed third (69.35) and Shorter University was fourth (67.05).

"It was definitely a year to remember in so many ways. Not all of it was easy but this team persevered and pushed through so many obstacles. In the end they came together to do something great. God has been so good throughout this whole season and giving us the strength to place second was just the icing on the cake. Thank you to all of those that supported us and thank you to the team for making me be a better coach," concluded Frazier.
