Davison won their first of five straight in '02, plowing through both the team and individuals.  Novi proved to be a great tournament team, as they would've finished 2nd with four state qualifiers (picked up a title from Churella, and 2nd, 3rd, 4th place finishes).  Another. interesting note is that five of the top 10 individual scoring teams came from the  OK Red Conference - Grandville,  East Kentwood, West Ottawa, Grand Haven,  and Rockford.

Lowell rolled to a team state title and followed that up with an impressive individual tournament as well.  Lapeer West would've been second, with four finalists including a title from Roger Kish.  They lost to Swartz Creek at regionals, who then lost to Mason a round later.  3rd and 4th place Coldwater and Chelsea both were beaten out of the regional which Eaton Rapids came through.  Middleville made another unreal run at team state, despite finishing outside the top 20 individually.

Finals 
Richmond def.  Constantine, 37-17

The Blue Jays of Shepherd put up the high score individually this year.  Not sure if we've seen a winning score in double digits yet, but that proves how competitive D3 would've been.  Shepherd had five  placers in total and two champs - Lyon and Lentovich.  Richmond won the state title with relative ease; they tied with Reed City for 3rd individually, who had five top-four finishers.  Montrose was within ten of the individual points title, thanks to three finalists and a champ.  Williamston had three finalists (Simmons, Hulliberger, Rice) and Tri County had two champs (Froese, Thompson) - they rounded out the top six.
