Note that for all of these previews, they don't necessarily indicate who will or won't win as who actually plays and how the line-ups match up and how guys/gals play on a given day is what really matters.
Here are the top-8 averages for the 3.0 Men:
|Flight B||TLTC Shedd A18||3.08|
Yes folks, these are 3.0 teams with top-8 averages well over 3.0. It appears flight A may be a little tougher, but ESTC and TLTC are the favorites. If they play their best players and play to their abilities, they may find themselves in the final.
The 3.5 Women stack up as follows:
|Flight A||VAC Wolfe-Hunter Fireballs||3.45|
|Flight B||Glacier Gals||3.32|
A few teams are again averaging above level. Flight A again appears a little tougher but the top-2 teams are in different flights and would be the favorites on paper to make the final.
The 4.0 Men look like this:
|Flight B||AYTC-One Hit Wonders 2-Hoang||4.03|
|Flight A||Lakewood Got Its||3.83|
Flight B has the highest and lowest rated teams, but the top-2 teams are again in different flights so have a shot at making the final.
Last for this preview, the 4.5 Women:
|Flight B||SPR Smash||4.27|
|Flight A||STAC Harn||4.17|
This is the first where the flights alternate, so again the top-2 teams could make the final.
With the flights being fairly balanced, it appears the folks at the Section have done a good job, whether by design or not, of making for a competitive Sectionals.
