The Cobras were led by senior Vincent Dumouchel/Candiac, Quebec, and freshman Keith Wallace/Manning, SC, who both tied for sixth place after shooting a combined 147 for the tournament. Wallace had a low score for the Cobras on day two shooting a two under par 70. Rounding out the field for Coker were juniors Johary Raveloarison/Antananarivo, Madagascar, coming in tied for 14th with a 150 two day total, and Blaine Rogers/Simpsonville, SC, finishing tied for 20th with a 153. Senior Gary Morgan/Dublin, Ireland, finished tied for 26th shooting a two day 154.
