Re: 2020 Science Olympiad Midseason Poll #1

I hope this gets traction, especially amongst the more experienced people on the forum. Interested to see if any teams that aren't national regulars (because they get blocked by a dominant team) make it on the rankings.

Re: New York 2020

2. Ward Melville- Superscored they were the best NY team at MIT. They also just got an influx of talent from Gelinas's best team ever, so they're definitely in the running for first place. Interesting you say this, because I would rank the 2010 Gelinas team as still being the best Gelinas team ever...

Re: Pennsylvania 2020

It appears as though the 5 teams from CEPA that are competing in another region are all competing in NEPA. That will yield 21 teams competing in NEPA with likely 8 state spots. The region actually had 22 schools as recently as 2017, but only had 7 state spots that year as the state had 113 schools c...

Re: 2020-2021 Events

I dunno. If committees can't work together because of personal differences, then NSO has much larger issues than just accidental event overlaps. That's where I will leave it. I don't have the impression that the committees are incapable of working together due to "personal differences" and I don't ...

Re: 2020-2021 Events

We don't really coordinate too much between the committees and hence neither event is related in our minds to the other. This seems like a major flaw to me, verging on critical. What possible reason is there to not coordinate between committees to make sure accidental overlaps don't occur? Competit...

Re: Pennsylvania 2020

On the central east side of things I'm surprised by Perkiomen's performace at Battle at Valley Forge. It's really a compeititon between Parkland and Northwestern for Central East but we haven't seen any results from Parkland yet this year so who knows at this point. Allentown Central Catholic did p...

Re: Pennsylvania 2020

Mountain View is continuing the upward trend Good Hope showed Wait... what team is this? The only Mountain View I can think of is in the CA HS. I've never heard of them before. As I understand, it was a new school built to replace Good Hope, and they changed the name of the school for good measure....

Re: Pennsylvania 2020

Alright, here are my semi-retired-but-still-somewhat-paying-attention thoughts on invites so far. The next ones might not come out for 2-4 weeks so enjoy them: Division B Eagle View looks like they'll be right in the middle of the fight for nationals spots. Combined with Springhouse looking vulnerab...
