Wait so Kansas gets to send 2 B teams?
I have asked this a ton before but I just wanted to make sure it's true :)
Quick question (this is my 1st year in Scio, sorry) but at state award ceremonies, do they (for overall placements) say like "And these teams are going to Nats? *deadly suspenseful moment* *"1st place"* *"Second Place*"?
Ento is Lyfe. <3 Ento. <3 Bugs. <3 Insects.
I didn't choose the Bug Lyfe, the Bug Lyfe chose me.

Generally they announce 2nd then 1st, but yeah, pretty much

At PA states they announced up to and including 4th place B, then up to and including 4th place C, then announced all of the winners. the suspense of who the unlucky 3rd place team would be was KILLING me. we honestly did not expect to make it.

I still can't imagine anything beating the tension when our school (newish to SO and never appeared at Nats) was announced as tied for second with Marie Murphy. It was ridiculous; I still can't believe it. Congratulations to you for making it, Tom.
