Thank you to all those who ran for their willingness to volunteer to be a Gotham Leader, as well as those who served as Captains this past year.  We are also pleased to announce that we had 680 total votes in the election the highest ever, and that almost 90% of those in Division Play participated in the Captains Election!  Great job!

Fall 2019 Team Captains

IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT THESE RESULTS:  Captains and alternates (except the first alternate) are listed in alphabetical order.  Alternates are prioritized based on the order in which they finished in the election.  If you are an alternate, please contact [email protected] or your Division Rep if you’d like to know where you finished.  Candidates need to receive at least 1/8 (12.5%) of the votes to qualify as an alternate, and only candidates who met that threshold are listed.

Also, all ties will be broken by a randomized selection process at a meeting of the Division Play Leadership Group.  Candidates involved in a tie are indicated by italics font.  If you are involved in a tie, you’ll be invited to the meeting to observe the tie-break.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact [email protected].
