Team standings are based on total scores from all levels. Central Ontario sent two girls teams to this national competition, finishing second and third. A mixed Western Ontario and Central Ontario boys team finished second. Tetrathlon is a very demanding competition with four parts: swimming, shooting with air pistols, cross-country running and horse jumping (both stadium jumping and cross-country jumping). Competitors in this event ranged from 12 to 21 years old.
