The state numbers are out. Missouri is only getting one bid for nationals. We missed out by one state. Here is the link, https://www.soinc.org/sites/default/files/uploaded_files/TeamNumbersfor2018NationalTournament.pdf

It's not April Fool's Day anymore, so did you all get tornados or something?

I thought that the weather was supposed to be really nice, but apparently it's going to be rough.

Does anyone know why in division B, a max of 5 9th graders is allowed on the team? I see this as an unfair advantage to teams that are trying to give there 8th graders time on the team.

Some division B schools goes up to 9th grade, and it would be unfair to let them compete and not other 9th graders and it would also be unfair to not let them compete, as they are still from the school.

Also since freshman tend to not have as high of a chance of making their high school's team, allowing 5 9th grader's in Div B lets them still compete.

I doubt that plays a big part. It's significantly easier for a freshman to be as good as someone a few years older than for a 6th grader.

True, but its still very difficult to make a 15 person team of upperclassmen in who have all taken or are taking AP science classes, when the highest science class a freshman would generally be in is Chemistry 1.

Did anybody notice that state has been rescheduled to the 28th? And Science Bowl Nationals (which Ladue is attending) is on the same day? Despite requests to change the date to the 5th of May, the state tournament is now on the 28th, and Ladue may be short a few members. Why was the 28th chosen? (What other national tournaments could there possibly be on the 5th?)

Especially being as late as it is, the date was probably chosen because it's all they could get and still have facilities available.
