The contest was held on 23 September through 26 September in Lexington, Kentucky (USA). 52 top teams in the nation came together from Alabama, Colorado, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Utah to compete.

The Sunrise team participated in Bench, Pre-shift, and the two days of Mine Rescue. The team finished the contest with a perfect score, which resulted in a second-place finish overall due to a tiebreaker with the first place team. The company would also like to recognise Willie Hamilton, who finished second in the nation on pre-shift, and Steve Earle who was first in Indiana on bench.

Sunrise Coal, LLC is headquartered in Terre Haute Indiana, where it operates one opencast and three underground coal mines in Indiana: Ace in the Hole mine, Carlisle mine, Oaktown Fuels mine no. 1 and Oaktown Fuels mine no. 2.
