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.
