An early preview of 2017 18 & over 3.0 Nationals - Current top teams in the country

Following on the heels of my previews of the top teams in the 40 & over division, I've done previews of the 18 & over division with the 3.5 men and women and 4.0 men and women, now the 3.0 men and women.

As usual, I'll be using my Estimated Dynamic NTRP Ratings to calculate the average dynamic rating for the top-8 players on the teams' rosters.  And I'll show the section/district/flight to let you know where the teams are from, but omit the team name to keep it a little mysterious.  Contact me if you are wanting more details on your team or what the actual teams are, or if you are interested in your own report, or a team or sub-flight report.

First, the top-30 and ties men's teams.

The women have representation from a broader set of sections, but still have a few way ahead of the rest.
