I've had enough--it's time for a wild-card qualifier or Charlie's top-8-earn-extra-berths or something. If Eden Prairie is in as a team, their top three score 11 points total. Their 3rd guy beat the #1 for 11 state-qualifying teams. An average race for the 4-5 and they finish 2nd.

A top-heavy team like EP could legitimately run 3rd at 6AA and 2nd at state with the same race.
