This was the first time in three years that the boys from the south have won the match.

Lucile W. Chambliss of Winter Haven, Fla., won the women's championship with score of 1640 .22 and center fire aggregates. This was twelve points over the women's record for the mid-winter matches which was fired by Alice Young in 1950.
