Modified Strength of Schedule Tiebreak Calculations:

Overlake:
4 x 12 = 48 (4-1 win over Skyline)
0.5 x 12 = 6 (4.5 – 0.5 loss to Interlake B)
3 x 14.5 = 43.5 (3 – 2 win over Issaquah A)
2 x 12.5 = 25 (3 – 2 loss to ICS)
3 x 12 = 36  (3-2 win over Interlake C)
48 + 6 + 43.5 + 25 + 36 = 158.5

ICS:
5 x 5.5 = 27.5 (5 – 0 win over Issaquah B)
1 x 16 = 16 (4 – 1 loss to Redmond)
1.5 x 13.5 = 20.25 (3.5 – 1.5 loss to Bellevue)
3 x 12.5 = 37.5 (3 – 2 win over Overlake)
2 x 13.5 = 27 (3 – 2 loss to Eastlake)
27.5 + 16 + 20.25 + 37.5 + 27 = 128.25

Mercer Island:
1 x 16 = 16 (4 – 1 loss to Redmond)
2.5 x 11.5 = 28.75 (2.5 – 2.5 draw with Interlake D)
2.5 x 13.5 = 33.75 (2.5 – 2.5 draw with Eastlake)
2.5 x 5.5 = 13.75 (2.5 – 2.5 draw with Issaquah B)
4 x 4 = 16 (4 – 1 win over Bothell)
16 + 28.75 + 33.75 + 13.75 + 16 = 108.25
