Update: ** indicates that the team is registered for the HSNCT

So out of the top 25, 19 will be in Chicago next weekend to compete for the 2009 HSNCT title. Out of the top 20, 17 will be present and competing. Correct me if I’m wrong, anyone, but this is based on checking the current field list.

Much thanks to Fred Morlan for conducting the poll and tallying the results.

We’ll be going through each of the teams that will be at HSNCT in turn over the next week or so as well as some of the teams that just missed the ballot. Stay tuned.
