Winning teams were:

Senior Division (co-winners) Blake Gervais, Ezra Garcia-Landa, Liam Jarvis, Josh McCleod and Reid Johnson.

Ben Ellis, Delano Paq-Man, Simion Ionce, Justin Plett and Justin Sadler.

Junior Divison: Christian Flores, Anthony Jaruchik, Simran Singh, Qamar Tahri and Tyrun Duval.

Staff Division: Mr. Hague, Mr. Rahe, Mr. Radons, Mr. McNarland and Mr. Bell.

Organizers stated they want to make the Mouat Mudder an annual event, with plans for a bigger event next year.
