Awards and Points
Medals and Trophies
1st thru 6th place medals will be awarded for each event. 1st thru 6th place trophies will be awarded to the Division B and C school teams.
Point totals will be calculated as follows
1st place = 11 points down to 10 places = 2 points.
A participation point will be given for 11 place and higher to encourage training, involvement, and preparation.
Trial Events are not part of the team scores but medals will be awarded. Medals will be awarded to the top six (6) teams or the top half of the competitors (e.g., 8 teams competing, 4 places are awarded).
