Who Will Win C Division at Nationals in 2009?
The choices consist of every team that got top 9 at Nationals last year, with Solon being replaced as a choice by Mentor, and with the added choice of other. I would have put the top 10 from last year, but you can only have 10 options and I felt that other was more important. (Sorry Bloomington North)

Hard to see any reason why Troy will be any weaker this year. Troy has to be the favorite.

Agree with boomtech and sciencegeek100.

Although I'd probably guess it's might be pretty close based on what everyone's been saying about Harriton.

I have to agree that Troy is the team to beat. Harriton's score at PA states is impressive but really doesn't mean much when you get to nationals. The fact is, any one of about 7 or 8 teams could win nationals and they aren't even getting any votes on this poll. Let's put it this way, if Troy doesn't win this year, it's going to be quite a dogfight to see who gets to knock them off. I mean really...Centerville? Fayetteville-Manlius? Grand Haven? These are all ridiculously good teams. Harriton is in there with them but I would have a hard time saying they're favored even if they did score a 65 at their states. It should be a great Nats. But you can't be the best until you beat the best. And right now that's definitely Troy.

Why are so many people picking Grand Haven?
I haven't heard much talk about them on the boards...

I don't have official scores, but I don't believe that they did as well at states. They still won, but from what I saw with medals, I don't think it was as much as in the past.

Sorry for the maker of this poll, but it's West Windsor-Plainsboro South, not North this year. I know normally it's North, not South, but they had a change this year. :D

Really? I had no idea! That's amazing! They have a high chance of winning! What school are you from?

I see Penncrest has a vote. I don't really know who to go with. I picked Troy, but I'm not sure if they'll repeat.

Does MI drop the lowest scores then? You can't get in the fifty's and bomb events, if you got first even in 19 events that would leave 30 points for bombing, in four events, and that's assuming you got first in all other 19.

Shruggs, nationals is close enough anyway. We'll find out then.
