The Castle Rock Rapids managed to win the title back in JAL 10 and followed that up with appearances in NC Finals in JAL 12, the NC Semifinals in JAL 13 and the NC Finals again in JAL 14. Last season the Rapids seemingly hit their decline as a franchise by missing the playoffs (and not even coming close at that) and this season are off to an 0-3 start.
Naturally, the question now arises: Are the Rapids finished as a top-tier team? Is the era over, and is time to stop considering them a threat in the race to the WWCD Cup? ...... The numbers are starting to speak for themselves.
