Kraemer comes up from SoCal to sneak first place away from Kennedy at the Churchill Invite today. Good times

Churchill lost their head coach. And Kennedy blew roller. Not sure what this means for SoCal. I'm predicting Kenedy to take the state.

Kraemer over Kennedy is certainly interesting. How were the scores?

Kraemer A 87
Kennedy Gold 90
Churchill Gold 136
Churchill Purple 152
Chaboya Red 230
Elkhorn Gold 231
Kraemer B 240
and so on

It was a three point win, and like Random Human said, Kennedy Gold got 23 on Roller Coaster which was over 1/4 their entire score (but got 1st on Kennedy Yellow, their B team, so there's that balancing act to look forward to for Mira Loma in January).

Kraemer put on a heck of a show, though. Kennedy hasn't really been close to anyone like that at an invite for a couple years.

As for Churchill losing their head coach, that may be true but they were still 3rd and 4th, and they don't really stack until states and still lost invites before to Kennedy even when he was their head coach. We'll see how much the change in coaches affects the end result in a couple months.

Impressive by Kraemer, if not so impressive as it seems at first glance. I'd agree that Churchill looks similar to past years. Another competitive NorCal B this year, it seems.

Does anyone have a confirmation for the NorCal tournament date from the TD?

I checked the website but it still seems to show last year (2017)'s information, with April 1st 2017 listed as the tournament date.

Thanks bearasauras.

My school is awfully bureaucratic and requires way to much head time to process any possible field trip requests

Kennedy 1 and 2 took 1st and 3rd in roller coaster at the Ladera Vista Invitational so they obviously got their device optimized. The two devices had 57 and 48 cm of gaps respectively so will be tough to beat. I am sure they will get better.

As for finals at LV, Jeffrey Trail was 1st by a big margin over Kennedy 1 who beat Kraemer by about 20 points (the roller coaster was the difference).

Mira Loma Div B:

1. Kennedy Gold (90)
2. Kraemer Gold (144)
3. Miller Black (155)
4. Churchill Gold (194)
5. Churchill Purple (221)

Kennedy also thinks their Wright Stuff scores were mis-managed and they should have had a 1st instead of 12th. So their margin could be bigger.

I don't have access to Div C yet, but Troy won, I think Mountain View 2nd, I dunno though, a lot of people were distractingly leaving.

I'm hearing Mira Loma did really badly, can anyone else confirm and does anyone have any theories if this is true?

The test folder didn't have the C results, so I can't comment as to what they look like. They did have three teams there, which I believe is more than in the past ML invites. Dunno if that spread themselves thin or anything but Troy being Troy they got 1st.
