I know that...the scores from PA haven't come out yet.
With knowing their score in 20 of 23 events it is not hard to figure it out.
But you can't figure it out exactly. I would agree that they're a very dangerous team. It's likely they get in the top 5.
The score was 65, however rockhound knew. And I hope you're right.

Lakeshore and White Pines scored 135 and 164 respectively. I'm guessing that these two will be highly competitive at nats.

Wasn't white pines the MI champs for a while?

I believe that they won for quite a while. I think that they were like Gelinas, maybe longer. But this year Lakeshore beat them. The only events that weren't top 10 for Lakeshore were robo-cross (27th) and WIDI (19th). But White Pines and Lakeshore both feed into Grand Haven HS, so I think that they do some stuff for SO together.

Ah. I was just wondering cause I've never heard of Lakeshore in the past. Have they always been like top 5?

They placed 8th at states last year. I don't think that last year anyone really saw them as a contender for first, but after placing 2nd at regionals, I think that they started showing their strength. They got 135 at states this year. Last year at states White Pines got 155 at states and placed 2nd at nats. I think that Lakeshore has a chance to be top 3. They just have to improve robo-cross and WIDI and they will be better. I think that Solon will probably win, and Lakeshore and one of the PA teams will be top 3.

I believe that Solon, Chardon, Sewickly, Shadyside, and Harriton will do very well, just based on past result/competition.

I think that Sewickly will probably place top 3 for B. In C I think that Harriton might win. 65 points in PA is amazing.

Oh, wow. Under 100 in a state like PA is really impressive. I think that Solon will be 1st with Sewickly a close 2nd. Lakeshore will probably be 3rd.

One thing that I wonder about Harriton is if they will have time to adjust for nationals. Events like Electric Vehicle and Junkyard Challenge require a lot of changes if you want to be successful at nationals.
