1Though scoring discrepencies in the subjective competitions were discovered, Durango, beating Boulder by only 149 points, advanced to Nationals when the State director decided not to adjust the official scores. As recompense, both teams were eventually awarded first place trophies. [1]
2In 2017, Frontier Academy brought only one Varsity to Nationals.
