That's similar to my situation. I was grading the road scholar tests and I had multiple large ties to break. Either most of the teams were really bad, or the test was too hard <--- which is good though. Most teams had like 5-15 points out of nearly 60, while a few outliers (big ones too) crushed everyone else. It became a real pain having to run through these massive ties, and decide who gets what place.
Problems are better pursued with General Electric GE90-115 engines.

Road Scholar:4th 8-)
Bottle Rockets: 9th
Meteorology: 11th
Gliders: 21st

The usual competitor -> test writer problem; every question is hard, and everyone does badly. You'll get better at creating a good spread of questions.

I have a question. Has the SoCal States Competition date been finalized?

4. Carmel Valley Team 2 (217)
5. Kraemer 2 (247)
6. Jeffery Trail Orange (250)

The number in parentheses are the points each team scored... Technically I guess Kraemer and JT are tied because Kraemer's Varsity lost to JT's varsity by 3 points, but JT's JV lost to Kraemer's JV by 3 points.


Very close indeed, but JT's scrambler got 45th, and yet they still got 1st. (I heard they hit their egg on the first run)


That's pretty impressive. I guess these two schools are neck and neck this year, because Kraemer 2's scrambler also got 45th (tie?), and they also broke their egg.

I think Kraemer might get first this year from last year's competition information.

No Jeffery Trail got first even after being DQd. Jeffrey Trail might be the next representative.

Anyone here willing to go and fill out the results table on the new San Diego Regional wiki page? (I'm too busy/lazy right now)

Is Polytechnic there because you were short on space? (or does this mean there will be more teams?)
