We have 2 7th graders, 2 9th graders, and the rest of us are 8th graders. There's no way we're going to have a middle school team next year.
2010:
Pentathlon-1@ regs, 4@ states, 16@ nationals
Road Scholar-2@ regs, 8@ states, 31st@ nationals
Disease Detectives-2@ regs, 1st@ states, 5@ nationals
Bio-Process Lab- 2@ states, 11@ nationals
Physical Science Lab- 38@ nationals
Team-1@ regs, 2@ states, 19@ nationals

Moving up to C.

My B coach (I'm in C now) likes to have even 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, as we rarely have 9th graders, if at all.

Heh. We don't have 6th graders on our SO team. Last year, there were ~ 15 9th graders, 2 8th graders, and 20 7th graders (of whom only about three stayed on this year).

Last year there were 7 8th graders, 3 7th graders, and 6 6th graders. Everyone gets an equal chance, and last year and 3 years ago (when I was in 6th grade :D ) the 6th graders had a major contribution to the team's success.

And aren't you only supposed to have 5 9th graders? Did you have more than one team for the rest?

With us we have 2 teams, so most the the 6th graders get on team 2. Most of the rest (except for some underquilfed 7th graders) go on team 1. Because only one team can be sent to the states (even though both teams usally quilify) 1 or 2 6th graders make the states team. And if we get lucky, the nats team.

Wow only 2 grade levels! Do you guys allow the 6th graders to participate? I think my team has the largest grade range on here. We have, like most of you already know, grades 5-9

We have 7-9th graders on my team. 5-9 is a lot of people. How many kids are in SO at your school? We have 25 kids.

60. Most of them cant participate at states though because they have junior districts :twisted: We're probably sending 30 or so to states.

:o :o :o Oh My God! 60?!!! Whoa that's a lot. The most I've ever seen the team at my school have is 45, and that was at the interest meeting. I think we're taking 23 people to regionals this year, but I'd have to confirm that.

At the beginning of the year, we had 77 kids. By Regionals it was down to about 55- we had 5 teams at Regionals- and now that we've had Regionals, more people will drop out.

We usually have around 60 kids try out for S.O., but our coaches pick the top 25 kids.

See, we have no cuts for Regionals. People drop out voluntarily. Even for States, only maybe 5-10 of the kids who stick around don't get to go to the competition (although obviously only 15 get to actually compete, we bring like 10-20 "alternates"- who are really everything from menial labor to event coaches to people who the coaches think have potential and so decide to bring with and show what the competition is like).

We also bring other kids that didn't make the final team but were among the top 25.
