Also a fun fact: the one year the 4th place team from the Southeast Region qualified for Nationals(Penncrest 2006) they placed 5th, 4 places above the team that placed 1st at Regionals.

FYI: New B Division invite at Garnet Valley.

Interesting that it's so close to Rustin but it's still another step to balance the distribution of invites in PA.

Also, any update on the C scores? Are we to assume they are final? Or are we to assume that Harriton and Hershey got 2nd and 3rd in Ecology, pushing their scores to 40 and 357, and Lower Merion got 1st, pushing them to 157? Same goes for the Electric Vehicle scores, where Wyomissing still has a 27th place finish despite not attending the state tournament.

With confirmation of Little Tiger for 2018, I just wanted to take some stats about the locations of PA invites by region:

NE: 1 C, 0 B (formerly Comet in B and Twin Tiers in C)
CE: 1 C, 1 B (does not include Berks and EPC in C)
SE: 2 C, 2 B (includes SE Urban; formerly Harriton Festivus)
C: 1 C, 0 B (Penn State would be in C, despite being 2 hours northwest of MC Barons; provides decent access from parts of NW, SW, and NE as well)
SW: 0 C, 0 B
NW: 0 C, 0 B

Overall, there's a pretty decent spacing of invites, especially in C division. There's still a hole in the Western side of the state, since the closest invites to Pittsburgh (Solon, Kenston) are 2+ hours away, but it's a process and I know that there have been efforts to look at the potential of having a tournament in that area. Mentor is relatively accessible from the Erie area (1.5 hours), but it'd also be neat to have an invite up there somewhere. But overall PA is in good shape for now; hopefully it keeps up! :)

Our school also goes to West Liberty-Salem. (I think it's like 2 hours from SW PA?)

According to Google Maps, WLS is about 4 hours from Pittsburgh; that is obviously dependent on traffic and starting location, though.

Oh. Must have mistaken it for another invite. Sorry.

I don't think anyone else has mentioned this yet, PA finally added a page for the Urban Initiative although it is pretty empty.

Does that mean more people at states?

Probably not. As I understand it, the Southeast Urban regional is a non-state-qualifying tournament to get more urban teams into SO. Teams from here typically eventually move into the SE region (as can be seen by looking at past scoresheets - e.g. Julia R. Masterman Secondary School, which competed in the Urban Initiative in 2016 and in SE in 2017).
