We (gelinas) got 11th in the nation. We were about 30 points ahead of the 12th place team, but only 43 points behind 2nd!!!!! Solon ran away with it, but 2-11 were all really competitive! It was an awesome time and so much fun!

And that 10/11 tie has to be brutal.

170...that's ridiculously amazing.
Congrats to Centerville, and everyone else who did well.
Ward Melville got 16th, which we are content with, considering all the chaos that was going on.

Yeah, Melville with one of their superstars unable to be there... 16th is impressive :-)

We, in 11th place, were only 6 points behind the 10th place team, and only 8 points behind Eagle Hill :D (we had, again, some unexpected bombs, so I wouldn't be calling off the question of who's the more competitive NY team just yet... you can see for yourself how close it was).

Haha, yep, and I have to say that 18th in Cell Bio after picking it up the night before was not bad at all. Though Victor did a lot of it.
But i did help...

Well, for example, our Robo-Cross robot burned out the night before and we had to use our Sumo-Bot with a shovel glued to the front... so we ended up getting 55th in that.
True, it doesn't affect us directly, but I can't say I won't harbor some Gelinas loyalty even once I'm at WM :D

Yeah, even in WM we're still kinda split between Gelinas and Murphy. Petty, i know, but we cant help it.
Not that we dont all get along. We're one big happy family (mostly).

We (Gelinas) didn't do so badly, considering the things that happened xD

We just have to be optimistic. And not just Gelinas, guys D: YOU TOO.

DON'T FORGET >:U
Or I shall eatchu o-o

And really, congratulations to everybody :3
Again o-o
I love you all, even thogh I don't know you xD
I love everyone in Science Olympiad, DAWWWWWWWW <33

Well, then they would have entered nothing and got 6 places worse. Not a great improvement, it seems.

We didn't bring the Sumo-Bot. It was driven up the night before comp by a parent. They did quick modifications to get it in specs.
