I can understand how the erroneous results were assumed to be correct - I looked back at the online results history for Monona Grove (and Burlington) - and could not find a scenario where the team awarded Top Choreography finished lower than 3rd runner up (1 time). In 11 of the 13 years I checked , the team awarded "Top Choreography" finished 1st or second. So a bit of an unusual scenario here. Regardless - I am grateful for the collaborative approach of the directors - and was so impressed by all the performers on Saturday - both on the stage performing and also off the stage when they support each other as teams walked through the cafeteria!
In 2014 at New London Reedsburg got best Choreo and 5th place
A year later in 2015 at New London Fort Atkinson got 4th with best Choreo
On two separate occasions in 2015 Sauk Prairie won GC while Onalaska got BV, BC, and BB
Weird things happen in show choir (shrug) Especially if the scores are tight

Monona Grove runs a great competition.! The staff is very friendly and they make sure it stays on time!! It is a very difficult job having to tabulate all these scores quickly. I applaud all the schools who host these competitions. It is a very big job and we all are human and can make mistakes.
I discovered where the discrepancy happened and the original results were correct. There was a typo in the Master recap we received today. Sorry to have caused any unnecessary stress to the Northern Lights! Congrats to everyone for a great day of Show Choir !
Hi everyone, North director here. I readded all ranks, followed all conversions, and the placements are still the same, with North coming in 4th. I checked other types of scoring systems just in case that's where the confusion was, and we still would not have moved down. I think all groups are amazing and I don't want any drama at all so if any directors want to chat with me and go through scores, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can definitely figure it out! Email will be better than on this website so we can make sure everything is accurate! So glad we got to perform amongst so many amazing groups yesterday! My students loved seeing all of the fantastic shows! Congrats to all!
Yes we are working together as Show Choir people do to figure out what happened. This is what is truly great about Show Choir is our ability to work thru the issues together! Yes it was a great day of Show Choir!
