I'm in NY, and to get to states, you have to be within the top 4 usually at regionals, depending on the amount of teams signed up. This year, I think they sent 5, which was more than ever, and there were 37 teams. In the past it's been 3 that go to states with 25-29 that compete. And there's 8 or 9 really competitive teams, with 3 of them usually unbeatable powerhouses.
For me, going to states would be probably be the same feat as some teams on here going to nationals.
Ok that helps. Here i live in Colorado and it is usually about half of the teams from each reigon go to state and you have to really suck to not qualify for state
