Im from pick central. Not a very competitive school in the past, but the class of 2015 is changing that! Our division b school, ridgeview, hadn't been to states since the 80s, but yours truly, and my friends sent them to osu for the past two years :) hopefully we can do the same now that we are in division c. We'll see I guess.
Do you go to states usually? (and no, i'm not going to mentor. Wsu was all the invitational I can handle this year)

Ahh, I've seen you guys before methinks. I think our high school team has always made it to state, might have missed once(in 5 years of existing). Piqua regionals is fairly soft competition compared to invites(no offense to anyone there). Centerville wins it, Beavercreek normally takes second, and WLS/Alter/Northmont can all beat each other on any given day. Last year we sent 4 teams to state and we went with Alter, but this year 5 will go.

Just got back from Mentor, well ran tournament actually. Awards got off nicer than WSU, I got home at 10 from both, but WSU is an hour away, and Mentor is 3-4, depending on how fast you drive.

well good luck then, it sounds like you guys have a good chance of advancing ;)
If you do, I can cheat off you in remote sensing. I suck at remote sensing :?

Wow. Looking at all these comments about reigionals, I feel so lucky we get to go to states automatically and out of the 20 years of existing, my team has only lost states once and only by a single point in 2005. But that still doesn't mean it's a given by any measure. I'm so scared for states on SATURDAY because I think this year will be really competitive with tons of new teams and everything like that. This would be a bad year to lose because of where the tournament is especially... :?

i believe churchill is the most competetive division B cshool. they carry 2 teams and got 1st place every year in Norcal regionals besides last year. Unfortunetly my school has to go against them:(

Statewise...NY, Ohio, or NorCal would be most competitive.

No, I believe
JC Booth (most competitive school of all time, have more national titles)
Solon (Mos competitive school as of late)

are both ahead of Churchil, and there may be others.
I think most states that send 2 teams can be considered competitive.

AL sends two teams.
We ain't competitive. And neither is Indiana.
