Wartburg won the team title with 86, followed by Carleton with 104 and St. Olaf with 131. The top two teams earned automatic berths to the NCAA III National Championships that will be held one week from today in Hanover, Ind. The Norse will find out tomorrow if they will be one of 16 at-large berths selected for the national finale.
