Re: Help Adjusting to Div. B

Thanks all for the help! I'm going to make sure the tests are on the more difficult side then. It also didn't occur to me that Div. B kids still have many years of scioly ahead of them to learn and continue working on their events, so a hard test won't frustrate them as much.

Help Adjusting to Div. B

I'm looking for some advice about the differences between Division B and C. In my career as a competitor, I only competed in Div. B for one year and I didn't take it very seriously. As an event supervisor, I have only written for Division C. However, this year I will probably be writing more for Div...

Re: 2019 National Tournament: Cornell University

I do think Boca Raton was overrated, but Acton-Boxborough was less than 30 points from 5th. They were rated just fine, but happened to get unlucky. ...so by that logic, the teams that placed ahead of them just happened to get lucky? ABRHS was unlucky that the distribution of teams in 2019 resulted ...

Re: Unofficial Rankings C

Why do you have Enloe so low? Their states score wasn't spectacular this year and it wasn't exactly indicative of any results higher than what they usually get. I know that they got 5th at MIT but I do believe (as I've said before) that results were significantly impacted this year by the absence o...

Re: Texas 2019

Why not LASA or Clements? Seven Lakes was just my best guess. But mainly because LASA has now missed nats for 3 straight years, and Clements has historically taken the back seat to the other two programs. Finally, a counterexample: NJ and WWPS v. WWPN? Why not two teams? I don't think comparing wit...

Re: Texas 2019

I'm curious: will the removal of Texas' 2nd bid reduce the number of elite teams the state can sustain? Before now, TX was like OH, with 3ish elite teams (Solon, Centerville, Mason; 7L, LASA, Clements) and 1-2 fringe teams (Mentor, Chardon?; Tompkins, ... TAMS maybe?). But with only 1 bid, it will b...

Re: North Carolina 2019

For the record, Enloe was tiered in Boomilever. It's worth noting that NCSSM placed last in WIDI. Overall, states was great as always. It's very different as a supervisor rather than a competitor - definitely less fun, but also less stressful. Any event reviews? Did anyone compete in DG? Edit: so Ve...
