I hope they make it but right now it looks like Strath Haven won't make Nats. How well has Dodgen actually done for people to have them in top 10 contention.
This is my second year in SO, and my team competed against Dodgen three times each year. They got 12th place last year in their first year at Nationals, and this year they are significantly better (104 to 70 points at state, even with my team going from 142 to 79).
EDIT: My new rankings list
1st-Solon (They're still going to win, people have been predicting their fall for the past five years)
2nd-Daniel Wright (Their state performance was as good as last year, and they always seem to be improving)
3rd-Meads Mill (DW is strong enough to beat them, but they've gotten better from last year too)
4th-Winston Churchill (They seem to be constant, but being from NorCal, it's tough to say for sure)
5th-Beckendorff (They're consistently around this range, so they might make it into the top 5)
6th-JC Booth (They're likely going to be top ten again after last year's fall)
7th-Dodgen (An almost definite top ten here, they've only gotten better since last year)
8th-SAA (They outcompeted Marie Murphy at state, but since this is their first time at Nationals, they probably won't make top 5)
9th- <going to finish the rest later>
