Huge gap between first and second, larger than I had imagined myself. Any thoughts?
Could you explain the scoring specifically? There's no way these scores could line up with 117 teams without their being a points cutoff.
I don't know the actual scores, but the scoring for San Diego is as follows: There were 117 teams from 35 schools. There are 20 awards for each event. First place in each event is worth 21 points, 2nd place 20 points, etc so that 20th place is 2 points. For those participating but not earning a medal, they get 1 point. No points are awarded if a team did not participate in the event.
For team trophies, the best performing team for each school is ranked. There are up to six teams from each school, but only the top team from the school is eligible for the team trophy. I know there was a scoring issue reported after the regional which did change the standings. Black Mountain and Mesa Verde switched spots. Design 39 school also moved up to 9th, but did not qualify for state.
This is the current placing for the schools qualifying for state:
1 Carmel Valley
2 Oak Valley
3 Black Mountain
4 Mesa Verde
5 Pacific Trails
7 Ocean Air
