HH/CCSS leads Brumbaugh Cup standings

Michigan Cup

Thu, Feb  28, 2008 - By Ernie Brumbaugh

At the August Michigan Cup Committe meeting there was much discussion on Team Scoring - Large vs. Small Teams, etc. Although The Michigan Cup remains the top prize for a team, the Committee instituted a second team-placing system, the Brumbaugh Cup .

The Michigan Cup championship stresses team participation; the Brumbaugh Cup focus on power ranking. For the 2007-2008 season, the Brumbaugh Cup ranking is based on the following points system:
  • Top three age group placings
  • Overall Male and Female
  • Top twenty Senior Men placings
  • Top ten Senior Women, Junior Men and Junior Women Placing.
We did a quick calculation of the Burmbaugh Cup standings based on results through the Michigan Cup Marathon. Hanson Hills/Cross Country Ski Shop leads the standings:

Brumbaugh Cup standings through the Michigan Cup Marathon

  1. Hanson Hills/Cross Country Ski Shop - 118
  2. Grand Rapids Nordic Ski Team - 95
  3. NordicSkiRacer.Com - 87
  4. Traverse Nordic Ski Team - 76
  5. Straits Striders - 62
  6. Cross Country Ski Headquarters - 26
  7. Ohio Nordic - 0
The Brumbaugh Cup is instituted on a trial basis and will be evaluated after the 2008 ski season. It does not replace the traditional Michigan Cup scoring system and is not intended to do that.
