The previous low score for 36 holes was a 134 by East Davidson's John Carter III at Broken Arrow in Statesville in the 1999 championships.
Burlington Williams won the Class 3A title with a team score of 579; Hickory finished five shots back with a 584. In Class 4A at Pinehurst No.6, Leesville Road won the state title with a 577 team score. Alexander Central finished eighth with a team score of 603.
