I personally believe Beckendorff's success will lie in how well its building events do. Last year, their study events were extremely solid (with the exception of R4TS), but they bombed Helicopters (51st), Rotor (43rd), and (depending on your definition of bombed) Mousetrap (31st). Had they been around 20th or 30th, I believe they could have easily been a top 5 team. While the same could be said for other teams (Mentor Memorial got 50th in Sounds of Music and Meads Mill got 56th [!] in Mousetrap), I personally feel as if it applies to Beckendorff more. However, we can't really say for sure until state. The regionals they went to was plagued with some questionable scoring and placements for all teams, and they never really had a stacked team during the invitationals.
