You're forgetting Greater Nanticoke, J.T. Lambert, Whitehall-Coplay, and Hershey. Stetson is also starting to be pretty competitive.
For trophying, maybe, but I don't think for making nationals. I think it's highly unlikely that anyone other than the three Ss and Bala are competing for a nationals spot.

I wouldn't count out anyone. There are too many intangibles at this point(new students, events) You never know.

Yeah.
I think that if a team is REALLY dedicated, and nothing goes wrong the day of the competition, and the team does really well, I think that team CAN make it to nationals, despite the fact that they've never gone to nationals, or whatever reason that may hinder their chance to go anywhere.

Good luck to everyone!! :mrgreen:

It's hard to tell from the outside. I think most teams know from the people they have and the dedication they'll have how far they will go. It's hard to tell about other teams though since from the outside you cant know that

I think a lot of teams take that approach when talking about nats qualification, where they say: "Well if we have a good day, and the favorite has a slightly bad day then we'll make nats". And math says that eventually you'll make nats if you consistently get top 5. Not to mention that dedication and hard work can get you anywhere.

Sewickly, Strath Haven, Shady Side, Unami, and a lot of the teams have increased their competitiveness. (I'm sorry If I spelled you school wrong)

Yeah, everyone does to seem to b getting a lot more competitive. I definatley think 2010 is gonna be Sewickley, Shady Side, Strath Haven, or Bala Cynwood, but withen the next couple years, we could have a new set of rising champs.... I mean u never know what might happen...

You never know who will do well and amaze you. Some great teams now might do poorly in the future. In Michigan there is a team called Forest Hills Central MS, and in the 1980's and 90's they constantly placed in the top 3 at nats. However, now their team doesn't even make it past regionals. It just shows that with a new set of kids and/or new coaches teams can drastically change, for better or for worse.

I think that's starting to happen with Stroudsburg. I'm hoping eventually a team outside SE and SW goes to nats soon. I know that's happened before, but that's been too long ago. Also I'd like to see someone besides Harriton win C.
