I don't think I can speak for my team, but I was nervous for awards. We had a few events we thought went really badly, and we weren't sure what to expect. I was so nervous. When we weren't ninth or tenth, my first reaction was :( But when we were called eighth, my reaction was :D

Our Disease, Rocks (1st! Mr. Vorwald was thrilled), WIDI, and Green teams recieved medals :) I was so proud of everyone, and I'm happy with my personal placings. Congrats to all, and I hope to see you next year!


I'm proud of everyone, but I'm especially proud of the Rocks kids. Even I never placed 1st at Nationals in Rocks (best was 3rd), they really did amazing.
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats

I am too! In Div. C especially though - Ward Melville and Fayetteville-Manlius had some excellent standings! I'm proud to be a New Yorker, and I hope I will have success in Ithaca.

:P Of course I am, Mai; you know that! I thought the top twenty at states was good, but top twenty at Nationals is absolutely incredible. There's always room for improvement, which is why I'm going to work hard next year. I don't think freshman year is going to be perfect, but I want my sophomore year to be really good. And the next ones will be fantastic as well!

There's a reason I'm staying in New York for school, it's because we all know that it's the best state! And this just further adds to that ;)

Okay, that page has been making me scratch my head a bit because of a few things. Mainly that people said some name change for Bungee Egg Drop and Complex Machines that isn't there and the fact that WQ is Freshwater instead of Marine.

I just noticed something...

Paul J. Gelinas was 3rd at nationals in 2010 (only around 10 points or so behind Arden, and about 100 pts ahead of Booth :shock: ).

That group of 9th graders that year must've trickled up into WM and played a huge part in their 5th place finish...because that class corresponds to WM's graduating class of 2013... :o

Division C States will be at...Kellenberg Memorial High School!

and Division B at... Greece Arcadia High School!

Personally, I'm ecstatic about both locations. I'll be home for spring break during Div C states, and I'll be in Rochester for the Div B States. If I can't get positions volunteering, I'll definitely be there watching!

Oh yeah, I'm probably the only one thrilled about this. But the advice I gave to my high school team is this:

Take advantage of that fact that States now costs $0 and go to an invitational. Be it Yale, 'Stoga, or hell even Athens. For all LI area schools along with NYC and neighboring counties, states is now a trip that doesn't require a hotel- use that to your advantage and use the money to get more competitions in.

And Case, coming down to Kellenberg from Ithaca is still a trip worthy of a hotel and team bonding. Don't despair :P

But the funding for that. For so many people. It doesn't seem fair.
