They represent dropped events. Texas runs 28 events, but each team only competes in 23.

How does this work? Do you choose which events to drop before the tournament, or do they just drop your worst scores?

You choose which events you drop before hand.

DC hasn't sent a team yet even though their state tournament was supposedly two weeks ago. Is it possible for Texas to send two teams to nationals this year (both Seven Lakes and LASA)?

How would you know that DC hasn't sent a team? I haven't been able to confirm the winning teams in particular (although, I've barely tried so far), but statements seem to indicate that DC will send. If someone else wants to go find out, I'd recommend reaching out to Fred Siegel and seeing if he knows (I believe he's still involved with DC SO).

To answer your question in particular, in 2011 DC declined their bid in late April, after which MN received a second Div C bid - so, it's possible.

Due to a scoring error in the Towers event, the Texas State results have slightly shifted. With these new changes, it appears that Clements HS is now in 2nd place. The new results can be accessed here

I've heard that other states allow more than one team from a regional to advance to states. Don't know if that's true.

It is definitely true. New York (depending on the region) allows 2-6 teams per region to advance. It's probably only the smaller states that allow only 1 to advance, since New York has the most scioly teams in the country.

I know stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Next year, I will hopefully know stuff about amphibians, reptiles, weather, fossils, and water.

I think they meant a school can have multiple teams at state.

Other differences include:
- Having 18 people on a team (NC, NJ, maybe others?)
- The ability to choose some events to "drop" (Texas does this, maybe others?)
- Not having any regionals (MA lol, and some smaller states)
- Having B and C states on different days

By the way, the "original" post was just a spammer who copied and pasted an earlier post from the thread, although I'll leave the replies for informational purposes.
