Regional Zone Championships
Team scores are calculated by summing the points of the Top 4 scoring players from each school at the end of play. Ties are broken by including the 5th highest score, then the 6th and so on until the tie is broken.
Interschool Medals are awarded to ONLY the Top 4 scoring players from each of the 3 highest scoring schools. All players from the school who are tied on an equal score with the 4th best player will receive a medal.
Additional medals, if required, can be purchased by winning schools for $5 each from the organiser at the conclusion of the event.
Individuals who finish in the top 3 places overall will be recognised, usually with a medal.
One new school qualifies for the State Finals from each Regional Zone event. In the case of a tie for first place all tied schools will qualify for the State Finals.
If the winning school has already qualified for the State Finals then the next placed school will also qualify for the State Finals.
A school winning a Zone Competition qualifies for the State Interschool Finals as follows:
1 zone win - 5 players
2 zone wins - 8 players
3 zone wins - 10 players
4 or more zone wins - 12 players (max)
The State Champion Team will be invited to compete in the National Interschool Finals.
Certificates will be awarded to every player on the following basis:
High Distinction 6.0 points or more
Distinction 5.5 or 5.0 points
Credit 4.5 or 4.0 points
