2021 Pre-NSC Rankings

We are ready to present our next set of pre-nationals rankings! Our rankings for teams attending PACE NSC will be similar to those in past years, as they only take into account performances on mACF sets. If you would like to see other pre-nationals ranking methodologies that have been discussed, check out this analysis article. With the prelim brackets now available, we hope these rankings will be helpful in making your predictions!

Thanks as always to our Patreon donors for supporting our rankings:

Enjoy your new rankings, and good luck to all teams competing at NSC this weekend!
