Changes in the calculation of team scores in the 2007 U.S. Forces Europe boxing championships resulted in Stuttgart being declared the team champ.

The previous calculations had awarded Grafenwöhr the title, but the results were refigured by Morale, Welfare and Recreation officials with the Installation Management Command-Europe.

Grafenwöhr is now the runner-up for the tournament that concluded on Sunday.

“At the request of a boxing coach, we recalculated the team scores,” acting IMCOM-Europe sports and fitness director Kelly J. Nebel said Wednesday. Kaiserslautern’s Jerry Hart was the coach who requested the recount.

Nebel said there were several erroneous calculations made at ringside on Sunday.

The corrected standings are: Stuttgart 31 points, Grafenwöhr 22, Wiesbaden 19, Kaiserslautern 17, Giessen 16, Heidelberg 4.

Nebel said arrangements were being made for each community to receive its proper trophy.
