Congrats to LASA and Seven Lakes for advancing to nats.
Looking at the C division results, it seems that subpar performances in scrambler and chem lab led to Clements's 3rd place performance. Scrambler is an event that can easily go wrong, so we can cut them slack on that, but they really needed to place on chem lab since Seven Lakes and LASA took 1 and 2. LASA won first due to an outstanding all-round performance, and Seven Lakes deservedly took the 2nd place spot due to a more consistent performance than Clements.

I don’t usually say things on this forum, but I just want to point something out for the benefit of future Science Olympiad competitions. Yes, I am from William P. Clements High School, but no, I am not replying to defend our “subpar” performance yesterday. Honestly, what we got is what we got, and I am never more proud to congratulate the two teams, including you, that will be representing Texas at the national tournament.

However, I’ve been watching this forum for three years now, and the post-state forum posts are never happy reads for any school. If a school’s performance for an event is lacking, the two people from that school who did that event are already hurting enough. Clements is in LASA’s state from two years ago, and the people who did Chem Lab and Scrambler on the Clements team this year are feeling badly already. They have their own reasons, so let’s please not bash on them, or anyone else from the third place school in the future, because adding on to the already worst feeling in the world is excruciatingly painful. I would know.

Firstly, I would like to offer my sincere apologies to anyone who was offended by my post.
My intention was never to rub salt into anyone's wounds, but simply to give my take on what occurred.
I hope that Clements will come back next year and prove to themselves and all of the other teams that they will not be defined by one performance, and that they use this as motivation to work harder than ever.

I too predict that this forum will cause hurt feelings, intentional or otherwise.

Be careful what you wish for...
