As a team, Forest City finished in a tie for 6th place with Charles City – both schools knocked down 2,492 pins. Louisa Muscatine won their fifth straight state championship scoring a 3,097. Camacnhce – who was the favorite coming in – finished in second place, scoring 3,024, Central DeWitt in third with 2,849, Vinton-Shellsburg in fourth with 2,739, Dubuque Wahlert Catholic in fifth with 2,575, and Lenox finished last.
