    Div2 qualification clarification

    As I understand it, the top 40% of the finishers at a ROC earn Regional points,and thus qualify for Nationals by being on the regional points list. However, foreign fencers are ineligible to compete at Nationals. Does this factor into the results and who qualifies if foreign fencers finish in the top 40%?

    Example: 30 fencers. Top 40% is the top 12. If two of those are foreign fencers - say #2, and #12 - does this open spots for #13 and #14 finishers?


    (asking for a friend ;) )

    No, foreign fencers are not "skipped" in the top 40%. Same rule applies for SYCs.
