Is registering our roster necessary prior to the competition, because I if so then I'd need another way of sending the info to Centennial's coach?

The question is: are the qualifiers determined by ranking within each afternoon bracket (my view) or by final record as reflected in the stats. Clearly teams in weaker brackets can sometimes amass a better record than the 2 worst teams in the top bracket.
We shall see.
Some of our expert forum participants may know but I will submit BOTH.
I'll tell you this. If you have a good case either way, PACE and NAQT have always (in my limited experience) offered wild card entries on that basis.
