Section Leaderboards: Mid-Season Edition

Well it’s time for my annual Christmas break deep dive into the standings and who’s getting what done on the scoresheet known as the Section Leaderboards. Every year I have to mention how our scores were never meant to be compared this way, and average points really mean very little in the grand scheme of things…. but its still fun to see how things might shake out if sections were today based on the best scores a team has generated so far. The last page of the standings is the “Top-10” of the style and class. What becomes apparent is how things are (and are not) balanced well by section and high scoring teams. A and AA look pretty well spread this year, but AAA maybe not so much. There’s more to come this season, so feel good about where your favorite teams are and get back to work to earn those top points come January. Have fun!
