East said he would make predictions for regionals after Cornell on the 24th. However, I don't know when state predictions will be made.

My predictions for PA state:

1) Strath Haven
2) Springhouse
3) Shady Side
4) Eagle View
5) Bala Cynwyd

As you can tell, I'm just a little biased.

This is what I would like to see, I'm a fan of Strath Haven. Although my predictions look more like:

1. Springhouse
2. Shady Side
3. Strath Haven
4. Eagle View
5. Bala Cynwyd (maybe)
...
7. Park Forest

You want to do state predictions before any regionals? :P

If I was seeding teams based on odds, it'd probably look like:

1. Springhouse
2. Shady Side
3. Eagle View
4. Strath Haven
5. Bala Cynwyd
6. Franklin Regional
7. Park Forest
8. Garnet Valley
9. Welsh Valley
10. Orefield

As you can see, it looks pretty similar to last year's results. Chances are regional results will change these a bit. ;)

You’re saying that 5th place (in schools) isn’t impressive in a close to national level invitational? I think they deserve more credit than that.

I’ll just say this:
last year at Mentor, we got 17th overall. But we made nats. I’m currently at Mentor right now as I post this (waiting for WIDI to start), we’ll see what happens.

I, on the other hand, think that Shady Side's performance at Mentor shows that Solon wasn't a one-time thing, and their performance this year is especially strong. I think any doubt that PA's second spot for nats (after Springhouse) could change has been snuffed out. It's gonna be another Springhouse and Shady Side year.

Scores of PA teams at Penn (Score with Rocks in parentheses):

1. Harriton B - 235 (238)
2. Harriton A - 242 (258)
3. Rustin - 321 (338)
4. Conestoga A - 355 (366)
5. Penncrest - 381 (395)
6. Shady Side - 438 (439)
7. Lower Merion A - 454 (475)
8. Lower Merion B - 541 (546)
9. North Penn - 550 (554)
10. Conestoga B - 569 (593)
11. North Pocono A - 603 (631)
12. Parkland - 636 (668)
13. Garnet Valley - 712 (727)
14. North Pocono B - 758 (802)
15. Whitehall - 802 (835)
16. Shipley School - 811 (848)
17. Masterman - 838 (878)
18. Sun Valley - 938 (984)

PA teams, manually stacked (with Rocks in parentheses)
1. Harriton - 122 (125)
2. Lower Merion - 252 (257)
3. Conestoga - 309 (320)
4. Rustin - 320 (338)
5. Penncrest - 381 (395)
6. Shady Side - 438 (439)
7. North Penn - 550 (554)
8. North Pocono - 571 (599)
9. Parkland - 636 (668)
10. Garnet Valley - 712 (727)
11. Whitehall - 802 (835)
12. Shipley School - 811 (848)
13. Masterman - 838 (878)
14. Sun Valley - 938 (984)

Overall, impressive showings by Harriton. I still think the race for second is too close to call between Lower Merion, Stoga, and Rustin; have to give Rustin the edge as of now based on experience and past history, but it could go any way. Penncrest has just looked a step off the front pack most of the year, and Shady Side also looks like it may be just behind Penncrest.

As for everyone else, North Penn has been quietly impressive this invitational season; I think they're a pretty safe bet to get 6th at SEPA, and may contend for top 10 in the state. North Pocono also performed solidly, although they didn't really distance themselves in the NEPA race here. Parkland finished okay, but it looks like CEPA is between NW Lehigh and Perkiomen Valley. Garnet Valley and Whitehall could make states but it may be close. Impressed by the quietly solid results from Shipley and Masterman; while they may not make states this year, their improvement is evident, and hopefully that continues in future years!
