Anyone else find New Trier's point win scary? They got 119 pts last year and this year they got 93...
I'd like to see how they do at Nationals.
Have fun Marie Murphy, South, New Trier, and Stevenson.

i thought new trier did better than 180 last year, i thought the 2nd place team (naperville central) got 180-ish, but 93 is certainly much better than last year. and they dominated the 2nd place team by 70 points, which is pretty crazy.

If they don't place top 10 at nats i'd be surprised... top 5 perhaps?


and we know that because they gave all division C coaches the score sheet for the state tourny (div c only)

Oops, sorry about that.
Last year it was NT Winnetka 119 and Naperville Central at 180.
Yeah, I don't think that they won by that much because competition got any easier. (Any NT people reading this are allowed to go :D now)
I definitely heard Niles North and Kennedy up there. Any reactions, thoughts, complaints? (And Marie Murphy if they would like to stop spamming and put in a legit conversation. And anyone else of course.)

A lot of the tests at State were weird. The Dynamic Planet one was more about Rocks and Minerals, and easy. The Fossils one was also weird: there was no identification. The Compute This one was about North Carolina. Was I the only one who thought it was weird this year?
There once was a group of teens
Who were lean mean science machines.
They liked to win medals,
when everything settles
and their favorite color was green.

yeah, it was, and the dynamic planet part of it was easy. i've never really ever learned anything about anything when it comes to rocks and minerals, so we ended up getting third.
dude, as a team we failed so bad... we were two point away from getting 5th place *headdesk* thank gods kjhsscioly and i going to naperville central next year, where we actually stand a chance to go to nationals.... which will be at U of I! *headdesks some more*

I was at these states too. Our team had an interesting time at the awards ceremony, due to the fact that we had to sit behind South, and our team got no medals at all :( . But yeah, i had the same answer at the end of the anatomy test. My partner answered yes. Also at the end of the enviromental chem test, there was a True or False question that said "Our team thought this test was too easy" we answered false.

Later on though I learned that If our team was in the single A divison I would of medaled 4th in enviro chem. The funny thing is i thought i didn't do so well either. Oh well about that stuff though, I had a fun experience with my friends and our whole team grew closer together. Plus, I'm entering Division C next year, and most of the team that did pretty well last year at states will be there now too. So, we have to try to get them to states, but our regional is pretty tough.

Also, I'm not going to reveal which team i belong too. But the Kennedy people would definitely know our school considering we go to the same regionals.
