How did they figure out that the SAA WQ kids got 3rd place, it isn't standard practice to go back and rescore everything?What is the tiebreaker rule for nationals? Based on medals, SAA has more, but Springhouse has the highest placing with 2nd in CJAP.I would like to note that Science & Arts tied with Springhouse.
Most golds, if still tied then most silvers, if still tied most bronzes, etc.
Also, due to a scoring mixup, Science & Arts Water Quality was rescored from 32nd to 3rd(!).
Of course officially, the only scoring change is that Science & Arts gets duplicate 3rd place medals.
I feel that the most unfortunate thing id that incidents such as this occur for too often and are swept under a rug, so to speak. Regardless of how well we did, I think that the scoring and placing of tests should be set to a higher standard.
That said, almost everyone running the National Tournament is a volunteer, and they all put an inordinate amount of effort into their tests. I do hope that no other teams ran into this sort of thing.
FYI... I don't 'run the whole thing', just the scoring parts..........the guy who was running the whole thing.....
