As of noon, most teams have completed two workouts in the Affiliate Cup, with several teams looking to solidify leads won in the first rotation.

In the Stadium WOD, Front Range CrossFit posted a blistering time of 14:20, well in front of Kelly Starrett's crew from San Francisco CrossFit (15:49). Third place went to Northwest Crossfit (16:02), with CrossFit NorCal the only other team that finished under 17 minutes. Seven teams did not finish the WOD, which challenged competitors with a 30 10 foot wall-ball shots (14/20 pounds).

The brutal trail run on The Hill was hotly contested as well, with CrossFit Central (11:40), CrossFit Redding (11:52.3) and CrossFit Atlanta (11:52.5) taking the top three spots. Also making good time on the steep terrain were CrossFit Flagstaff and Front Range CrossFit, both of whom just squeaked in under the 12-minute mark.

On the North Pad, CrossFit South County posted a 949 total on the overhead squats/pull-ups WOD. CrossFit Silicon Valley was next at 926, with Wasatch CrossFit the last team to crack 900.

With constant results coming in at press time, Front Range CrossFit stands in first place. Northwest CrossFit, CrossFit Calgary, CrossFit NorCal and Rainier CrossFit round out the top 5.

One rotation remains to determine the top five qualifiers for Sunday's Final Affiliate Cup workout.

"One rotation remains to determine the Affiliate Cup champions."
