Congratulations to everyone who qualified for the state competition at West Point. I probably saw many of you without knowing it, and I was probably seen quite a bit as well.

the competition was so crazy! Teams 3-7 (Between dominant Kellenberg and the new guys (us - Division Ave.) we're sepereated by 17 places. I usually do really well in experimental (medaled at states in 8th grade) and if we didn't get 40th . . . we could've beat them! Totally insane. It was totally up for grabs. And I can't believe Chaminade went from just missing states to winning the entire regional.

People asking about the bridge efficencies: I placed 5th and had an efficiency of about 708 and I did the math for Hicksville 1 - it was like 892 (they placed 1).

See everyone at states!

GO NERDS!

Idk if you the Hicksville Bridge Builder but I run the Division B Bridge Event every year - Mike (from Wisdom). Anyway, my coach and I were talking to your coach while you were competing and he told us you had build a 17.0 g bridge. Nothing shocking because you always medal ahead of me (so jealous) but I respect you for it. Anyway, me and my partner were watching your bridge and for a second we thought it was leaning . . . we were like NO WAY! not Hicksville - you usually build your stuff well. And then the event supervisor shout out your amount held . . . and with a calculator wall-ah! Haha. We figured you'd be top 2 at the time so we knew what we had to do.

Did you compete in EV too because if you did . . .you got me again haha. I only got 2nd.

Looking foward to a second round at states ;) . . . .

u know what really annoys me? when we impounded our electric vehical, someone jacked our batteries and the replacement batteries werent fully charged so it significanlty decreased the power behind our vehical. and we only placed tenth. we DEF would have placed top five if it werent for the battery thing.
