This event will be held at some VASO regionals depending on facility access.  For the regionals where it will be held, the score in the event will not contribute to the overall team score determining which schools will be invited to the state tournament. However, competitors in the event must be members of the 15-person competition team (not alternates). Further information will be coming about which regionals will hold the event.
