It all depends on your state. In some states half the teams go because there are so few teams. In bigger states, it's a real challenge.

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

Good job. There's a seventh grader on the team who got 14 medals, and this is his first year. 5 from regionals, 5 from state, and 4 from nationals.

He takes trigonometry. That's how smart he is. So option A could be right. And option B because his partners were eighth and ninth graders. At nationals, he got second place in Crave the Wave, fourth place in Experimental Design, and fourth place in Road Scholar. His partners for those events were ninth graders.

Sorry, I thought you meant what I italicized, instead of what I underlined. In that case, that's amazing.

We had a 7th grader (that's the first year at our school) who got 3 golds in his 3 events at States... he had 3 9th grade partners, two of whom were captains.

Ha I did that too this year. But I only had 1 partner be a captain. And I worked with a 7th grader at regionals.
