Saw something today I don’t remember seeing in the last 8 years of enjoying these awesome competitions. Realize scoring and weighting differs from one comp to the next, but have never seen the 3rd place group win vocals and combo, the 2nd place group win Choreo, and the GC group not take any of the 3 caption awards. Results of the women’s division seem strange. Can someone here explain how the weighting might impact total score outcomes this way?

I’m surprised too. I guess they had an overall better production.

The 3rd and 2nd plave groups also could have had points deducted.

It's definitely happened where captions end up all over the place.

Back at Marysville in 2010, Gahanna Lincoln won best vocals and ended up 4RU.

Back at Wheaton in 2012, Totino Grace was granted GC captionless while the captions ended up with 1RU and 2RU.

Just show choir things, you know? :D

Thanks, Max. Do you happen to know if Peotone attended? In your post you jumped from 7RU to 9RU... not sure if Peotone is in between there or if you had a typo.

Oh yeah, Peotone got 8th, and the rest of the placements are correct, if I believe so

Sudden Impulse is listed under Tier II but they are indeed a women's group.

We are a women’s group, must be a typo or something.
