In the fourth position was Scott Tate, Middleburg, while Eric Heydenreich, Bloomsburg was fifth, Steve Lenig, Selinsgrove was sixth, and Blane Heimbach, also from Selinsgrove was seventh. Eighth place went to Brian Kishbaugh, Nescopeck, ninth to Eric Perchak, Hazelton and the tenth position was taken by Frank Venezia, Little Ferry, NJ.
