Im from pick central. Not a very competitive school in the past, but the class of 2015 is changing that! Our division b school, ridgeview, hadn't been to states since the 80s, but yours truly, and my friends sent them to osu for the past two years :) hopefully we can do the same now that we are in division c. We'll see I guess.
Do you go to states usually? (and no, i'm not going to mentor. Wsu was all the invitational I can handle this year)

Ahh, I've seen you guys before methinks. I think our high school team has always made it to state, might have missed once(in 5 years of existing). Piqua regionals is fairly soft competition compared to invites(no offense to anyone there). Centerville wins it, Beavercreek normally takes second, and WLS/Alter/Northmont can all beat each other on any given day. Last year we sent 4 teams to state and we went with Alter, but this year 5 will go.

Just got back from Mentor, well ran tournament actually. Awards got off nicer than WSU, I got home at 10 from both, but WSU is an hour away, and Mentor is 3-4, depending on how fast you drive.

If you do, I can cheat off you in remote sensing. I suck at remote sensing :?

Wow. Looking at all these comments about reigionals, I feel so lucky we get to go to states automatically and out of the 20 years of existing, my team has only lost states once and only by a single point in 2005. But that still doesn't mean it's a given by any measure. I'm so scared for states on SATURDAY because I think this year will be really competitive with tons of new teams and everything like that. This would be a bad year to lose because of where the tournament is especially... :?

i believe churchill is the most competetive division B cshool. they carry 2 teams and got 1st place every year in Norcal regionals besides last year. Unfortunetly my school has to go against them:(

Statewise...NY, Ohio, or NorCal would be most competitive.

No, I believe
JC Booth (most competitive school of all time, have more national titles)
Solon (Mos competitive school as of late)

are both ahead of Churchil, and there may be others.
I think most states that send 2 teams can be considered competitive.

AL sends two teams.
We ain't competitive. And neither is Indiana.

I don't think so because what if you pluck a school like Solon or JC Booth into a state like Alabama? Giant massacre, I'd think.

Though, plucking Solon into any state would result in giant massacre.

Putting them into my state?
Seeing as I'm on the dominating team...heck yes, giant massacre. It would be bad. BAD.
