Indeed, 1988 was the last time or so (based on the results history from the old site) since I think they may not have competed then (unsure). I'm quite surprised, and I also thought the region normally sends three teams, so that's something. They've been doing worse sometimes in recent years, but it's really been quite a fluctuation.

Also would've thought Capital District would've been up by now, but I guess not.

Yeah, the region normally does send two teams. I wouldn't be surprised if the director and whoever he was working with got confused and thought that it was supposed to be two teams when it was really supposed to be three because Vestal got first again. It's hard to tell.
I looked at the regional for Nassau West and in the Excel sheet, it said that regionals with 10-19 teams would send two teams but if a team that finished first or second in the previous year also finished first or second (order doesn't matter in that case), they would send an additional team. I don't know if that applies to New York state as a whole, but if it doesn't, I think it should. Most regionals have certain teams that consistently do well and some that don't do as well, and I think that this is an effective system to allow more teams to experience the state competition. If anything, I think it's one of the main reasons that Chenango Forks was able to beat Maine-Endwell this year, but that's just a theory.

Where is everybody. New York used to be very active. Are you going to states? Are you excited? Are you nervous? Any predictions? How far do you have to drive? Just pick a topic and run with it!

New York is more active than West Virginia to be fair ;). Also, the bright side is I haven't heard any raging controversies, but who knows, there's still a week. And there's also directly after states. Sadly I don't compete anymore, along with many way more active users :/. I know Syo is working about as hard as ever, and at that I do believe the others among the past top 10 teams are also working pretty hard. I am waiting to make a good luck post (or edit if nobody else posts) on Friday.

But ohoho, in the mean time predictions you say? Well, I can break this up into one main block, and then everything after. My expectation would be [Columbia/HHHE/FM/Syo/Ward] in some order (alphabetical so nobody can point to what I think :P), though I know most people probably are going to say Ward, FM, Columbia, HHHE/Syo. The top 5 is weird because they're ALL really good teams, and it does come down to a bit of luck here and there. Maybe some people would place Columbia higher from last year, but I wouldn't say that's for sure just considering how competitive that batch is. My personal bias would also just have me put Syo at first or second or something :P. After that I guess maybe Mount Academy unless they are deciding to bring up their studies to break the top 5, but I do think that's tough. Beyond that I don't know quite well, I see some teams get better in like the 7th-15th or so range, but even that's a bit inconsistent. I think the top 6 (because let's face it, Mount Academy is pretty dang good right now, so may as well include them) is kind of a wall. Remember to watch the live stream!

So basically my predictions are kind of useless since Syo will be best either way, haha (oh, bias...at least I can't get critiqued for it).

I think I practically never double post, but I'll make an exception today. Good luck to NYSSO, competitors, and coaches. I hope all teams have a great time, and a major good luck to Syo!

By the way, if anyone's interested in taking a look, I will be attempting to do a live medal results spreadsheet for Division C:

obviously this isn't the official grid. Is this correct though? Anyone have the complete results? Could up post them? I looked at the NY SO site but last year's still posted. That's cause it probably just ended and everyone's boarding buses and heading home.
