NOTE: Several names were difficult to read. Please send corrections to (E-mail info).

I apologize for the poor quality of these results, but in 1978 results were typed using typewriters, the Internet didn't exist, results were photocopied on first-generation photocopiers, and fax technology was also in its early days. For whatever reason(s), page 2 (of 3) of the results are mostly illegible.

Winston-Salem R.J. Reynolds won its fifth straight championship, totaling 49 points to 60 for runnerup Chapel Hill.

The 1978 course, run on and around the Keith Hills Golf Course in Buies Creek, was not particularly well-liked by several runners and coaches, primarily due to runners having to funnel to cross a narrow golf cart bridge barely 200 meters after the start.
