Survival Instinct's new 2014 lineup had to look at the overall leaderboard to compare their scores for the very challenging first four rounds of last weekend's competition draw with other AAA Class teams in France and the United Kingdom. The MWSL team must have been pleased with the results on the international stage.
The internal MWSL leaderboard needed a few adjustments, as the teams completed different numbers of rounds with different totals at Chicagoland, while the teams are ranked according to their averages after all completed rounds on the overall leaderboard.
|MWSL July 2014||Round 1||Round 2||Round 3||Round 4||Round 5||Round 6||Total||Avg|
|1||CSC Survival Instinct (US)||7||10||10||9||-||-||36||9.0|
|1||SDC Jetstream Tango (US)||8||9||10||6||-||-||33||8.3|
|2||CSC Now Call (US)||5||8||8||5||7||12||26||7.5|
|3||System4tic Ch4os (US)||6||3||8||4||-||-||21||5.3|

The meet participation at Chicagoland has increased significantly, and just as much as at Skydive Chicago, ever since the SDC Rhythm XP members accepted previous MWSL Director Alan Butt's offer to bring in their skills and experiences to the MWSL meets.
It happened only two times in the past that eight teams competed at Chicagoland (September 2009, August 2010) before SDC Rhythm XP attracted ten teams to the July meet last year. Skydive Chicago, Rhythm's home DZ, is still hosting a few more teams at the MWSL meets, however, it is getting closer.

Shannon Sweet trained and competed with the SDC Furies in 2009. She was the Center Outside for the System4tic Ch4os lineup as a player coach last weekend. The new A Class team eXtreme had the Hot Pink D-Bags as a direct opponent in a tight A Class competition, where both teams increased their meet averages significantly.
SDC Jetstream Tango was still a Rookie Class team in 2009 and is now posting the highest scores of the Midwest Skydiving League in the AA Class. New Rookie Class team SkyKnights PAC Attack posted a team best for a single round with the 8-pointer in Round 2. The MWSL teams meet again at Skydive Chicago in August.
