SSNCT PRE-NATIONALS RANKING

After a lot of requests, we are pleased to finally unveil our pre-nationals ranking for SSNCT. The methodology for ranking this was a lot different from what we normally use. For one, we eliminated the 18 ppb barrier that exists in our normal ranks, and considered A-sets as SSNCT is much easier than normal HS nationals – as such performance on novice sets like A-sets is more directly applicable to performance at SSNCT. We also only considered NAQT sets since NAQT distribution is very different from mACF and performance on NAQT is the best indicator for performance on SSNCT. To calculate adjustments, we created a separate pool consisting only of the small schools, in order to better relatively rank the small schools amongst one another. This ranking is also the first to use a new method we are trying of weighted ranking, which will be explained in an analysis article later this week, which rewards consistently strong performances over more anomalous ones. Thanks to NAQT for your support in allowing us to create these rankings and a special shout-out goes to non-Groger Ranks member Aidan Leahy, who helped us compile the stats for the various small schools in a timely manner.

The following rankings were brought to you by our subscribers on Patreon:

Some teams had no usable stats on the NAQT page, as their tournaments were missing key statistics like powers or PPB. Because we adjust every set separately, we were also unable to include teams whose only stats are from tournaments that used combinations of multiple sets. As such, they may be underranked. Here are the teams we could not consider in our rankings:
