As expected, the talent and competition level at the Battle Royale Classic in Cincinnati, Oh last weekend was superb, as there were multiple nationally ranked teams participating in each division.  In fact, in several divisions, teams were attempting to knock off #1 ranked teams.  Not only were there a number of competitive teams, the individual talent in the event was significant.  Below is our initial list of standout performers we saw over the course of the weekend. You can expect a second list within a day or two.
