The Shift in Rankings for Team USA’s Cadet Squads for the 2017 Junior & Cadet World Championships – Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Posted · Add Comment

With less than three weeks before the Junior and Cadet World Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, we thought it worthwhile to provide a series of slopegraphs to illustrate how the rankings have changed for the 18 cadet fencers who have made Team USA over the past twelve months. We have also provided the rankings for the 18 fencers who ended the season as alternatives for members of Team USA. A full list of the 2017 Cadet World Championship Team is provided at the end of the post.

The ten-day tournament (April 1 to 10) will include events for cadets (U17) in each gender-weapon category, as well as a mixed weapon cadet team competition. Cadet Team Points for selection are earned at North American Cups, National Championships, July Challenge and designated Cadet international events. The top three athletes on the National Cadet Team Point Standings were selected as members of the Cadet World Championship Team and are eligible to compete in individual competition. The number one ranked fencer is selected for the Cadet Mixed Team event at the Cadet World Championships. The rankings are based on Cadet Team Points earned in competitions that begin with the July Challenge and end with the Junior Olympic Fencing Championships.

The rankings in the following slopegraphs reflect end-of-year rankings based on final Cadet Team Points for 2016 and 2017. We believe the slopegraphs are self-explanatory but reveal the different routes taken by fencers to secure a place on Team USA. Scroll over the end of a line to reveal details. Please check out our accompanying post for Team USA’s Junior squad.
