The reason that Science Olympiad is so amazing is because of the fact that the whole team needs to be good and hard-working. There are countless amounts of very brilliant people out there, and I'm sure that they would deserve to have a great team like many of us are so lucky to have, but by making a team for said people we would really be ruining the spirit of Sci.Oly., as well as the competition.
Yeah, I had TSA in both MS and HS. The middle schoolers really bugged us SciOlyers about how TSA is greater than SciOly and whatnot. They took it so far that they put up posters.
