The Whatcom county Middle School League runs throughout the school year through state qualifier tournaments. The best performing team will win the rotating 1st place trophy for their school!
A team is all members from the same school that decide to play in any individual state qualifying tournament.
Determination of 1st-5th place team standings at each state qualifying tournament will be based on the top 4 individual scores from that school. Only the top 4 players scores are counted for each team. If teams tie for a place during a tournament, the tied teams will both evenly split the cumulative points of all placements, in this case other school teams will not be bumped up a place.
1st place= 5 league pts
2nd place = 4 league pts
3rd place = 3 league pts
4th place = 2 league pts
5th place = 1 league pt
Only state qualifying tournaments of 5 rounds in a Middle School only section can count. The lowest score will be dropped at the end of the tournament season for each team. If there is a tie on league points for 1st place, there will be a head off round played at G25;d5 between the top 4 players at each of the tied schools. If a team cannot produce 4 players, then every empty board will be a forfeit loss and will be scored as such.
