I don't think Solon will repeat...they only won nationals once (I think) and they have ranked in the top ten for a few years.
I was in the B Division last year, and I was in the top 10 schools at nats, and Divsion B isn't as competitive as it used to be. It isn't as hard to rank well as it used to be.
Booth will probably rank well...but I'm not so sure if Solon will win.
How is Solon like the situation with Troy?...I may be wrong, but hasn't Troy consistently won several national competitions. I don't think Solon has reached that caliber.
Their score at states was excellent, but I've seen better.

So who did you wind up picking? Booth, Solon, or someone else?

Well, I voted for the first 5 teams in the list in both divisions to get rid of an SQL error in the Most Favored section >.>

I'm definitely rooting for our WA B team (ExCEL) to make a strong showing. Their academic events are exceptionally strong (as well as several of their building events), and I'm betting that they take 3 golds or so in Georgia. The past two years, a WA team in B division has taken top five overall at Nationals. We're moving up the ladder! : )

Under the predictions for nationals, people are still putting that White Pines will do better than Lakeshore. I don't think they realize that White Pines didn't win states. They got 2nd by 29 points.

So taht doesn't mean anything. Solon got 2nd last year at states and beat Magsig. It's very possible for a second place team to do better than the first place team at nationals.

Solon definitely, but I will still support my junior high school's team. Nats last year was so fun even though we didn't do so well. It's times like this I wish I was still in division B so I could go with them!

That's true. White Pines did beat Lakeshore at regionals. But for some reason, I think that Lakeshore will win. I believe both of them will be top 5.
