Region 12 is this weekend - I'm looking forward to it! It was incredibly closely contested last year, and it looks to be similarly close this year. Should be fun!

I'm not even going to try to make predictions - I learned long ago that I am always wrong ;)

I will say that I was surprised by the relatively low performance of West Ottawa and Plymouth Christian this year at invitationals. GR Christian wasn't great either. We will see how it goes.

Yeah, it's all possible. But last year West Ottawa got 7th at the Allendale Invitational and we thought GR Christian was beatable. Then they got 3rd and 1st, respectively. I think John's predictions are good, considering the region's history.

I think so as well, although I won't be surprised with almost any result. I do think it is highly likely that the usual 6 teams will go to States. I think it's likely that Jenison gets that 7th spot.

I certainly think Grand Haven is (as always) the favorite, but I think any of the top few teams really have a chance if all goes well. We will see.

Region 12 Div C:
1. Grand Haven (65)
2. Forest Hills Central (79) - smashed my bracket
3. West Ottawa (143)
4. Plymouth Christian (145)
5. Grand Rapids Christian (162)
6. Allendale (167)
7. Caledonia (212)
8. Jenison (222)

I have a picture of the scoresheet. I'll post it when I get home.

Division B:
1. Lakeshore (91*)
2. Allendale
3. White Pines (156) (dang son)
4. Chandler Woods
5. Riley Street
6. Plymouth Christian
7. East Grand Rapids
8. Macatawa Bay
9. Harbor Lights
10. Northern Hills
11. Jenison

*Apparently 4 teams, including Lakeshore, initially were not scored in Ecology. Lakeshore actually received 1st in the event, bringing them from 122 points to 91. Not sure if it affected any placements in the top 11.
