#3A: Who “Won” Regions?

We know who won 3A-Region 1 last week. DeLand joined Suwannee and Fleming Island as “double region” champs.

But we also like to toss around ideas about the region tournament, that this district is the best, or no, that district is top-heavy but isn’t the best top-to-bottom.

And the little kid-baseball-stats-nerd-turned-wrestling-writer-stats-nerd loves these kinds of discussions.

So, which district “won” each of the four regions?

These numbers might help start the discussion, here’s first a breakdown of the state qualifiers, by numbers per district:

20: District 2.
18: District 3.
14: District 1.
4: District 4.

My Iowa math tells me that’s 56 state qualifiers, which should track.

There’s two ways to evaluate which district “won” each region — points and qualifiers (with medals broken down). The breakdowns by each region follow.

Region 1

Points: 1. District 3 517.5. 2. District 2 510. 3. District 1 395.5. 4. District 4 163.5.


  • 1. District 2 20 (3 1st, 4 2nd, 8 3rd, 5 4th).
  • 2. District 3 18 (7 1st, 6 2nd, 3 3rd, 2 4th).
  • 3. District 1 14 (3 1st, 3 2nd, 2 3rd, 6 4th).
  • 4. District 4 4 (1 1st, 1 2nd, 1 3rd, 1 4th).

Unlike 1A or 2A, the data’s a bit conflicting with regard to who “won” Region 1 in 3A. Looking at the medals, the depth of District 2 carried the day. But, looking at the points scored, the firepower up top of District 3 carried the day. One thing was for sure, with just two qualifiers, and 7.5 points, separating Districts 2 and 3, it was a good fight for the top.

I don’t know if I can get all 12 districts done before I go Friday morning to Osceola, in fact I’m pretty sure I can’t, but it’ll be interesting to see how the districts will fare at states next week!
