And as a free preview, here are the top-8 averages for one of the flights at the Utah Districts.

Sub-FlightTeamAverage
Flight ASports Mall-Johnson/Mitchell3.41
Flight ACMTA @ Liberty Park-White/McManus3.41
Flight ASpanish Fork-Lucas/Padgett3.27
Flight ASalt Lake Tennis Club-Crandall3.21

It appears Sports Mall and CMTA are the favorites and it is a toss up which is the favorite to win.  It will come down to how the players do this weekend and if either captain is able to get advantageous match-ups in their match.  But they shouldn't ignore the other two teams, upsets do happen!
