Are the raw scores posted anywhere that anyone knows of? I mean like within events.

If it was an order error, idk how they can mess up just the top 6. Given that you claim to have gotten a good score, it isnt possible for the scores to be ranked backwards, otherwise you would be all the way at the end.

When they rank the medalists, they ranked “top 6” highest score first..
I guess..

Having been privy to the score validation process twice now, I can assure you that it is literally impossible for them to use a different order for the top 6 versus the rest of the teams. A score misstep is possible (perhaps a dropped negative sign?) but it's not an ordering issue.

Few things to notice - Springhouse got 72 points last year and 73 last year, which is literally no difference.

On the other hand, shady side got about 30 LESS points, which means they're improving... a lot.

Also, predictions can start! All 60 teams, except for Arkansas, are on the wiki.

They did it for battery buggy at my regionals, so I don't know if it's impossible. They called the top 6 like this originally:
1.Team A
2. Team B
3. Team C
4. Team D
5. Team E
6. Team F
But at the end redid it because they said they screwed up and called up:
1. Team F
2. Team E
3. Team D
4. Team C
5. Team B
6. Team A
But, that might just be how that regional was run.

None of that is possible, just look at the raw scores. Even if a negative sign or something was omitted, his/her score would be below the theoretical minimum score of -25.

What do you mean? If a negative was omitted the score would be positive. I was just sayin at my regional they flipped the top 6 around.
