Here’s this year’s update of the program rankings.
The rankings work like this:
- Rankings based entirely on place at the state meet
- The last 10 years are considered
- Champion earns 5 points, runner-up 4, third place 3. Rest of the top 10 earns 2 points and all other qualifiers earn 1.
- Points are then weighted. x4 for the most recent year, x3 for the 2 years before that, x2 for the three years before that, x1 for the four years before that.
A team that wins all 10 state championships scores 100 points. A team that qualifies every year but never cracks the top 10 scores 20 points.
Neuqua Valley 56
Naperville North 45
St. Charles North 32
Naperville North 50
Hinsdale Central 42
W W South 32
Boys plus girls:
Naperville North 95
Neuqua Valley 69
Hinsdale Central 49
Biggest change from last year that I see is that the top of the girls’ board has changed. Palatine’s two trophies have now pushed them ahead of Naperville North.
Suggestions on how this can be improved would be entertained.
