Did You Know...

... that the three teams on the top of the AAA Class leaderboard progressed in three different ways?

Out of the Blue at the Tomscat Trophy last weekend
posted Jul 8th, 2019 - Last weekend's AAA Class leaderboard was a colorful mix of teams from three different countries: Netherlands, Belgium and Czech Republic. All British teams competed in the other three categories (AA - A - RRR).

The NSL News covered the duel between Out of the Blue and HF Flying Circus earlier with an update from Most in the Czech Republic. The teams from Netherlands and Belgium competed at the Tomscat Trophy in Hoogeveen.

The Top 3 on the AAA Class leaderboard mirror the mix of teams from the three countries, and the meet videos of the ten rounds at both locations are now available and feature three new team record average performances.

All three teams lifted their performance levels to new heights and above certain scoring benchmarks. Out of the Blue posted the team's first 16+ average, HF Flying Circus skipped the 14+ level and finished with a 15.0 average. Falco went from 10.2 at last year's national championships to 13.2 last weekend. All three teams did it in different ways.

HF Flying Circus last weekend in Most
Out of the Blue had another change in the lineup at the end of the 2018 season, after trying to find the right mix since the team project was launched in 2017.

The new 2019 lineup attended three indoor meets, beginning with the Belgian Indoor Nationals in December 2018, and showed consistent progression.

The Tomscat Trophy last weekend was the first outdoor competition for the new lineup. The 16.2 average is a new team record number, and former active team member Leon van Leeuwen was filming the performance as the new team videographer.

HF Flying Circus have not changed their lineup since Jakub Klapka joined the team for the A Class competition at the Clash of Champions in November 2015.

The same lineup moved up into the AA Class together in 2016 and then into the AAA Class in 2017. The first outdoor average in the AAA Class was a 10.3 in May 2017.

As Out of the Blue, Falco had a change in the lineup at the end of the 2018 season, as well. It was a different one though.

Falco at the Tomscat Trophy last weekend
Former Thunder ISR member, 4-way world class competitor Paul Hofstee, joined the team this year for the second season in the AAA Class. Falco had started in the AA Class of 2017.

The original lineup (Valerie Van Daele, Maarten Coenen, Andy Pieters, Hans Van der Avert) posted a 15.5 average at the team's first AAA Class competition, the World Challenge 2018 and followed up with a 10.2 at the Belgian Nationals the same year.

Valerie Van Daele, Maarten Coenen and Hans Van der Avert then continued with Paul Hofstee in the 2019 lineup and turned the 15.5 in Bedford a year earlier into a 20.4 at this year's event. The outdoor performance experienced a similar boost, as the 10.2 average in September 2018 turned into a 13.2 last weekend, despite a total of 11 point deductions.

The three different ways how the three teams on the top of the AAA Class leaderboard arrived there were all very successful, and the NSL News will continue to follow the progression this year.
