I trust your first weekend of competitions went well for you and your students.
There’s been some confusion about the scoring system this year, so I’ve been asked to send out an email to hopefully clear up the confusion.
At each meet, an average of 62 is the requirement for a blue ribbon
To qualify for the state tournament,
A student must
- attend at least three sanctioned competitions
The average score at each of the student’s three highest meets must average to 62 or higher OR the averages must add up to 186 points
NO ROUNDING OF ANY SCORES.
So here’s some math:
- Student attends 1st, 2nd, 3rd meets and earns a blue ribbon at each meet. This student qualifies for state.
- This student has shown consistent standard of excellence.
- Another student attends first meet, earns a red with an average score of 60 (60 pts in each round), earns a blue at second meet with an average score of 64 (R1-66 & R2-63), third meet earns an average of 68 (68 in each round). You add the averages together (60 + 64 + 68 = 192).
- This student has shown consistent growth leading to standard of excellence
Something to have stuck in your head is:
SIXTY-TWO is the NEW for the BLUE
Have a great season!
