FULL RESULTS ARE NOW POSTED.

Division B full results.

Division C full results.

I'm going to repost this from the first page. I updated the top 10 list with scores...

Division B
10th: Lakeshore - Michigan - 384
9th:Eagle Hill - New York - 382
8th: Thomas Jefferson - Indiana - 380
7th: White Pines - Michigan - 378
6th: Muscatel - California - 373
5th: JC Booth - Georgia - 370
4th: Arden - California - 369
3rd: Community - New Jersey - 349
2nd: ExCEL Homeschoolers - Washington - 347
1st: Solon - Ohio - 242

Division C
10: Mira Loma - CA - 416
9: New Trier - IL - 360
8: Liberal Arts and Science Academy - TX - 353
7: Mentor - OH - 352
6: Penncrest - PA - 335
5: Fayetteville Manlius - NY - 330
4: Harriton - PA - 247
3: Troy - CA - 228
2: Grand Haven - MI - 205
1: Centerville - OH - 170

A few comments. First, I've never seen a top 10 list so tight as the Division B one. Solon basically ran away with it, but for the 2-10 to be separated by 37 points? Wow.

Second. Division C. WOW. The top FOUR teams under 250 points? The winner at 170? That just seems really low to me. Centerville only had 1 event out of the top 20 and 7 out of the top 10. Impressive.

Here are the list of winning and 4th place scores from the past 5 years:
2008: 216, 314
2007: 201, 287
2006: 172, 303
2005: 217, 367
2004: 263, 331
2003: 268, 291

Complete blowout by Solon. But the rest of the top 10 was completely open to others. It was a true fight for 2-10. Division C is impressive as well. Getting 170 at nats is incredible. Congrats to both Ohio teams for dominating.

is it so hard to order the teams by rank instead of team number? :evil: :evil:
I have last year's scoresheetsand they were done like that
If they are gonna wait till the next day to post the results they might as well spend a few extra seconds pressing the button that orders the resutls by rank.
To accomodate everyone they usually have 2 scoresheets per division: one organized by rank and one by team # so i hope they still do that.

HUGE congrats to Bloomington South for getting 14th after finding out about getting to go only 3 weeks before!

And that 10/11 tie has to be brutal.

See, if they cared about you (us?), they would have just posted the Excel sheet instead of the PDFs. :P
