Another year, another shootout at the Northeast Regionals. This year the title goes to Living Waters Chapel of Lebanon, Pennsylvania. It was one of those tournaments when almost any team could beat any other, and Lebanon was not exempt — their loss came at the hands of the eventual fourth-place team.

The "Apostles" team from Allison Park (PA) A/G took second place. The final National Finals spots being sorted out in a three-way playoff between Grace A/G of Syracuse, NY; Expressway A/G of Buffalo, NY; and defending regional champions South Hills A/G of Bethel Park, PA.

This year's regional was held May 4-5 at Binghamton, New York.
