Because they didn't all make it to nationals?


9/10 of last year's top 10 for B is returning to Nationals this year. White Pines Middle School (7th last year) isn't going this year

It's a bit of a consolation when you can say that you did just as well this year as a team that got 7th last year.

Actually, neither of the teams that got seventh last year, Mentor and White Pines, made it this year.
And the seventh place C division teams from 2006 and 2003 didn't make it in 2007 and 2004.
I think there might be a curse.

Judging from earlier posts he made, he's obviously from NY.
First of all F-M has been to nats a lot more than just 08-09 (im assuming you're just too young to know though)
It's also on the list, it's the first one on the c div list..... :|
looking at earlier posts you say Eagle Hill is not there also, it's 4th on the B div list.....
not sure what list you're looking at

Don't you just love teams who go every year? Scioly has less parity than the NFL. But that's what makes it special when a lesser-known school wins. Next year, here comes ON. (*knocks on wood*)

I see what you mean, but it's kind of unavoidable for any competition that's set up the way SciO is. The teams that go to Nationals a given year get more practice, so they do better the next year, so they go to Nationals again, so they do even better the next year... and so on. It might be unfortunate, but it's certainly not unfair. Any team, with sufficient preparation, could go to and win Nationals.

Yeah, in virtually every competition you end up with just a few teams that usually win.

However, it's not impossible for a fairly new team to do well at Science Olympiad. Just look at how good LASA has become in the last few years.

Yeah, well I hope that Oregon Trail takes first place in all those events too.

Too bad we aren't going. ;)
