The overall champion is determined by the number of games won by each set/game. However, it seemed irrelevant as Stedfast once again dominated the games winning four of the five sports, with only the KL State carom team spoiling their perfect record. Therefore, the champions for the fourth consecutive time went to the Stedfast Association of Kuala Lumpur.
