2020-21 HSQB Pre-Nationals Poll Results

The following article was a contribution by the entire Groger Ranks staff and many members of the HSQB community who helped out with this poll. Thank you.

We at Groger Ranks are pleased to announce the results of our second pre-nationals poll (we did not have one for the 2019-20 season unfortunately for obvious reasons.)

We have attached 10 ballots used to make these ranking below, as well as the justifications used by the voters. The rankings were conducted as follows: a team was awarded 30 points if they were ranked 1st, 29 points if they were ranked 2nd, etc. all the way down to 1 point if they were ranked 30th. Unlike previous polls we did not drop the highest and lowest votes, as a result of only 10 ballots being submitted
