Fourteen tables of competitors participated, with the Dhir team holding on to win in the last round.

All of the players on the winning team learned to play through classes and camps offered by Atlanta Junior Bridge. Zandy commented that the game was exciting and suspenseful all the way to the final round.

Close behind in second place was the Raina Team (Mili Raina, Sean Gannon, Murphy Green, Kevin Cooney).

The remaining finishers were: 3rd Duddikunta Team (Siddu Duddikunta, Monali Shah, Surabhi Ghai, Saachi Hingorani); 4th Green Team (Angie Green, Ashish Shah, Maya Kelkar, Ricoh Das, Kenneth Yang).

A Newcomer Team Game was held concurrently with the championship for newer, less experienced students. The winner of that event was the Vayner Team (Gilbert Vayner, Konrad Kraemer, Morgan Mattke, Mary Wexel).

The contest was open to all Georgia residents under the age of 19.
