I honestly had never heard of Albany before today, but they seem to have been on anupward swing at NorCal States recently, going from 13th to 5th, and now this. Camas and Clark are also especially strong this year (though we definitely knew the latter after their MIT results).

Im a little shocked at the excessively low Mira Loma scores. Even unstacked, I would have expected them to be contending with Troy for top places in each event, but it doesnt look to be the case.


But if you look at Mira Loma's composite score between both teams, I think you'll find that they are still (probably) better than any other NorCal team. I would agree that the gap appears to be closer between Mira Loma and teams like Albany, Mountain View and Palo Alto.

What do you guys think happened with Mira Loma? I remember they had 3 teams at the ML tournament on the 6th of January. Are they hiding their talent / best builds?

No idea, I would find that to be an odd strategy as it would have you miss valuable time to test your builds, notes or partnerships. I have heard from some Mira Loma competitors that they lost a lot of key seniors last year, maybe they will have low year this year and then next year they will be competitive again.

And you can bet all of the other three teams will be racing for the nationals spot while Mira Loma is down.

I must have missed the meaning in the last sentence. Regarding the first, what are you looking for in particular? I think I could give some reasonable estimates.

@CalColin: Will we be seeing electronic watermarking for digital tracking, or some other manual method?
