They got 1st at Wright State, which is basically the hardest, most competitive tournament after nats, so I'd say 1st at nats is a pretty good prediction.

Is Clements doing well enough that they have a good shot at qualifying? I recall a 12th place finish at MIT, and I'm pretty sure they brought all of their builds.

I would say LASA is the 2nd team in Texas, but I don't think I would place them that high nationally.

TX sometimes seems pretty much like IN in that anything can happen lol. That being said, I honestly have no idea if it's Munster or Carmel that's gonna make it out of Indiana this year ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ a lot can happen between Northridge/Wright State and IN State (March 18). Either one will def make Top 20 tho. That being said, I'm gonna take a wild blind shot at predictions for top 20 in C because I can:

1. Troy
2. Mira Loma
3. Texas Team 1
4. Harriton
5. Solon
6. Texas Team 2
7. Stevenson
8. Northville
9. Ohio Team 2
10. New Trier
11. Mounds View
12. WWPN or WWPS (whoever makes it)
13. Acton Boxborough
14. Chattahoochee
15. Whoever makes it out of IN (Carmel or Munster)
16. PA Team 2
17. Columbia
18. Boca Raton
19. MI team 2 (unless it's Grand Haven. Then this might be higher.)
20. Iolani

****These will probably definitely be heavily influenced by the teams that ACTUALLY make it out of their respective states****

Mentor, Mason, and Solon are all from Ohio, which sends "only" two teams to Nationals.

There's Centerville too! They haven't been to many invites this year, but they looked quite strong at Wright State without a full team, even.

I feel like everyone always forgets Centerville. They've qualified to nats for the last 15 years (altho that's a streak we can hopefully break :) )

There is centerville, but at Wright state both of your split astro teams managed to run away with the victory (1st and second) in Astro against our split team. You dominated UPenn, and Centerville has been meh.

Rather difficult to do in some places (e.g. as far as I know Fossil Ridge has yet competed this year).

Div B:
  1. Beckendorff
  2. Solon
  3. Meads Mill
  4. Daniel Wright
  5. Kennedy/Churchill
  6. Piedmont
  7. Tower Heights/Magsig
  8. Springhouse
  9. Marie Murphy
  10. Gelinas
  11. Lakeshore
  12. Longfellow
  13. Jeffrey Trail/Kraemer
  14. WW-P Community
  15. Eagle Hill
  16. Ladue
  17. Dodgen
  18. Auburn
  19. Pembroke Hill
  20. Fulton Science Academy

Div C:
  1. Troy
  2. Seven Lakes
  3. Solon
  4. Harriton
  5. LASA
  6. Centerville/Mason
  7. Mira Loma (if Mountain View, 2 ranks lower)
  8. Stevenson
  9. Northville
  10. WW-P North (if Montgomery, 4 ranks lower)
  11. Acton-Boxborough
  12. New Trier
  13. Mounds View
  14. Chattahoochee
  15. Columbia
  16. Boca Raton
  17. 'Iolani

Any particular reason for ranking Mira Loma so low? They were 2nd in 2015 and 1st in 2016 and I haven't seen any evidence of diminishing strength. Hard to imagine them dropping 6 places from last year seeing as how they aren't losing any builders from last year's national team

I do see a bit of evidence in them not doing quite as well at invitationals (and the fact that Mountain View has a decent shot at beating them). I could reasonably rank them as high as 4th (3rd if Seven Lakes doesn't qualify), but I can't see them beating Troy or Solon.
