The San Diego regional is this weekend. Based on the invitationals, Oak Valley looks strong. Can they knock off Carmel Valley for the top spot in the regional?

I'm with the Mesa Verde team. On paper, our top team is stronger than the team that finished third in the regional last year, but not as good as the team that finished third at state. As usual, we haven't participated in any invitationals, so we have no idea how good the team really is. It is a younger team than last year, with more 7th graders on the top team. We lost a lot of good 8th graders with a lot of experience from last year's team, so this may be a rebuilding year for us.

Good luck everybody!

Who do you think will win states?
Most people have been talking about Kraemer, but keep in mined, at the Mesa Robles Invitational, we destroyed Kraemer by 60 points.
Good luck though

What a joke. How did you get 1st place in 6 events when your school only got 4 1st places?

So the tourney ended up being 38 B and 25 C teams.

1. Troy A (67)
2. Troy B (81)
3. Diamond Bar (166)
4. Arcadia (194)
5. Clark A (213)
6. Edgewood A (225)
7. Portola (226)

and so on from there


67 and 81?!??! WOW! Troy is on fire! A lot of the tests were probably weird with information that wasn't on the rule sheets and they still did that well. That's scary. Wow

San diego regionals are different--the highest score wins. That being said,
1. Carmel Valley Cosmos (306)
2. Oak Valley DaVinci (257)
3. Mesa Verde Explorer (228)
4. Black Mountain Sushi (222)
5. Carmel Valley Shockwave (212) *
6. Black Mountain Boba (193)*
7. Carmel Valley Thunder (192) *
8. Carmel Valley Galaxy (148)*
8. Oak Valley Edison (148)*
10. Carmel Valley Eclipse (147)*
11. Pacific Trails Poseidon (146)

*Placing was not announced at award ceremony because the school had a higher placing team.

Huge gap between first and second, larger than I had imagined myself. Any thoughts?

Could you explain the scoring specifically? There's no way these scores could line up with 117 teams without their being a points cutoff.

I don't know the actual scores, but the scoring for San Diego is as follows: There were 117 teams from 35 schools. There are 20 awards for each event. First place in each event is worth 21 points, 2nd place 20 points, etc so that 20th place is 2 points. For those participating but not earning a medal, they get 1 point. No points are awarded if a team did not participate in the event.

For team trophies, the best performing team for each school is ranked. There are up to six teams from each school, but only the top team from the school is eligible for the team trophy. I know there was a scoring issue reported after the regional which did change the standings. Black Mountain and Mesa Verde switched spots. Design 39 school also moved up to 9th, but did not qualify for state.

This is the current placing for the schools qualifying for state:

1 Carmel Valley
2 Oak Valley
3 Black Mountain
4 Mesa Verde
5 Pacific Trails
6 Meadowbrook
7 Ocean Air
8 Marshall

Ok, so reverse scoring with a cutoff at 21. For others who may care, essentially 23*21 - score will give the score in the usual format (though one cannot adjust for the points cutoff without knowing raw scores).
