Im not the most knowledgeable person on this region, but a few teams to look out for off the top of my head:
WWPN Team 1
WWPN Team 2
WWPS
Montgomery
Boca Raton
Penncrest
Great Neck South
Connestoga A
Camas
Lower Merion A
Bayard Rustin A
John P Stevens A

Hopefully I hit the top 6 out of the teams listed.
Somebody more informed please feel free to adjust this.

From NJ and I think wwp south will place higher than north...just from what I saw at regs


Of course I hope that that happens, but Regionals is really no indication, given how few events are run and how all the teams are basically just throwing freshmen at the events. This year, both WWP North and WWP South will be at Yale prior to Princeton, so that's probably more likely to be an indicator of how we stack up against each other.

Do trial events count towards final score at Princeton?

I would put Charter School of Wilmington into this list, but it looks good otherwise. East Brunswick, Princeton, South Brunswick, and Centennial would make up my next tier of teams, but I probably wouldn't expect any of them to make the top 6.

If you're going to be there, we're gonna try to arrange a somewhat big scioly.org meetup with whoever's there. For those who'll still be around after awards, there may be plans to go get ice cream at the Bent Spoon (on recommendation from knottingpurple)

Time for some predictions!

1. Montgomery: Very nice composite performance at MIT and will be only bringing one team as per what I see on the team list. This also assumes WWPN and WWPS will be unstacked

2. Bayard Rustin: Although they haven't attended many noticeable invitationals so far, their results warrant a higher standing than WWPN and WWPS.

3. Camas: Oops I forgot Camas.

4. WWPN: Just beat WWPS at Yale.

5. JP Stevens: Amazing performance at regionals, actually beating a WWP school! They should be hungry and coming in strong.

6. WWPS: Seem weaker than last year but Princeton should give them a chance to reassert their strength in what basically is a pre-state tournament with some strong teams in other states.

7. Conestoga: Did better than Boca at MIT; Boca should be right behind them here

Rest of the field seems pretty even. Would put East Brunswick and South Brunswick in a jumble behind Conestoga (maybe Princeton High School but from what I see in the NJ States result last year, they were disappointing).

Problems:
1. WWPN and WWPS will most likely be stacked.
2. JPS did not beat WWPS, their stacked team lost to the unstacked WWPS team by one point at Regs.

I have no idea how well Monty will do against WWP, but I cannot foresee JPS beating South, or any WWP school lagging that much behind Rustin. North actually beat them at Conestoga/BVF.

Notice how he never said they did. Although it's nice to see they make you feel a little uneasy ;)

Ah, assumptions. You know what they make of you and me... I keep forgetting they beat North. Still, placing JPS ahead of South and behind North doesn't make too much sense...

Lol I'm loving the salt from all sides, this is hilarious. (But also you maybe should all just chill and just go study and prove each other wrong when we get there.)
