Performance by Top Seeds at Regionals

How did the top-seeded teams perform at Regionals?  

Nearly 80% (19/24) of #1 seeds won their 2013 Regional Tournaments held during the past two weekends. Not all of the eight USA Ultimate regions are created equal, with some having more bids than others, so data focused only on the top-seeded teams at each of the Regionals. Over 90% of #1 seeds qualified for Nationals.
