Notes

  • Third and fourth place were not distinguished before 2009; for 1998 to 2008, both teams listed should be considered semifinalists of equal standing.
  • The 2010 second place spot was originally awarded to Southside until Amit Bilgi was found to have cheated. Southside's wins were all forfeited, and all lower finishers were subsequently moved up one spot.
