The second-place team was crying this year after they were announced 2nd...I guess they must have been upset about breaking their win streak.havenguy wrote:Yeah, I don't think I'll experience anything like I did the time our team made nats for the first time. Most of my team members were crying. I wasn't as involved in SciOly then, so I didn't really comprehend how amazing that was.
This year, we definitely were happy to go to nats again, but there is nothing that can replace that feeling of last year.
But I vividly remember the award ceremony...the 3rd place Div C team was called, and when they started walking off, we all got really nervous because we had performed really well. Of course, the "perennial power" of VA had also performed very well, and neither of us had been called to get our trophies yet. When the lady started announcing 2nd place and it wasn't us, we all started freaking out. It seemed forever to get the 2nd place Division C team off the stage And finally, the champions were announced and we all went crazy
I think I'm still dreaming
