With around 20 days left, does anyone have any predictions? Mine are as follows:

1) Seven Lakes
2) LASA
3) Tompkins (from what I recall they did really well at a regionals with lasa?!?!)
4) Clements :?:

I was talking to a friend in Tompkins Scioly and he thought that they had a chance to make nats this yr, but I'm a bit doubtful (unless they drop Game On, which, looking at regionals and CyFalls, seems to be a tough spot for them).

For those wondering about Tompkins - an unstacked Tompkins finished only 11 points behind LASA at the UT Regional, even with a 10th place in Game On!!!

Yeah, I don't think Tompkins will really be able to beat either Seven Lakes or LASA... but then again, they might be able to pull a Clements circa 2013/2014 and surpass LASA. Seven Lakes has a sure shot for 1st based on their performance last year at the national competition and everything this year.

I'm not sure if Tompkins can beat Clements either... they may have been close to winning at regs w/ LASA, but i think people are still underestimating Clements...

Predictions:

1. Seven Lakes
2. LASA
3. Clements
4. Tompkins?
5. CyFalls? (I think we'll do better than last year, when we got 6th)

Div B Predictions:

1. Beckendorff
2. Riverwood
3. Tays
4. Harmony School of Excellence? Anthony?

I know we (Seven Lakes) beat both Harmony and Tays at regionals, but Tays beat us at every tournament before that. Also, Harmony beat us at state last yr. The reason I didn't include Kealing or Austin Area Homeschoolers (even though they got 2nd last yr) is because Kealing hasn't been doing so great this year, and I haven't really heard about AAH this year.

Div C Predictions:

1. Seven Lakes
2. Clements
3. Tompkins
4. LASA

There is a chance that Tompkins could beat Clements, but I wouldn't count on that right now.

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).
