Yet you have Tompkins beating LASA... Is there any particular reason why?
As far as I know, LASA isn't doing as well this year, and Tompkins did beat them at least once. Plus, they did well at regionals with LASA. Also, which school are you from, yuoto?
They got second at Golden Gate with 132 points (ahead of Mountain View and Mira Loma, and behind Troy).

Not to mention fifth place at MIT as well

It's worth noting that in Division C, Texas tournaments aren't a good indicator of skill because many teams (LASA, Clements, Seven Lakes, Tompkins, etc) don't go stacked to these competitions. You're better off looking at a competition like MIT or Golden Gate

It's pretty interesting to see how many people think Clements will make nationals. They've proven to be a really strong team in the past but have been weakening to say the least this past year, seen in their performance at MIT. Obviously, I have nothing against them.. I just think they'll have to pull a huge reversal to make top 2. It might be possible, who knows? For now, 3rd/4th seems likely for them. As for Tompkins... I think everyone is overestimating them. They're strong, enough to maybe beat Clements, but LASA (looking past their already god status) is still consistently doing really well in every out-of-state/in-state competition. One competition where Tompkins lost by 11 points (and LASA still won, keep in mind) doesn't tell us anything. I don't see see them going from 1st to 4th in a million years (or at least, this year).

I really don't think Tompkins will break the top 3 and I think it's even more unlikely that LASA will get 4th

Div C:
1. LASA
2. SL/Clements (can't decide)
3. SL/Clements
4. Tompkins

Div B
1. Beckendorff
2. SLJH
3. Tays

I strongly disagree with your predictions. SLHS is probably going to get 1st- I would like to hear your reasoning as to why LASA or Clements would beat them, especially since your profile says that you're from SLHS. Also, I am on the state team for SLJH, and there is an extremely slim chance that we will make nationals, or even break into top 3. Have you forgotten about Riverwood, Anthony, and Harmony?
