Are you sure they're going to national for scibowl? I thought they got second.

Per cursory Googling, Ladue Middle School is going to NSB.

Yup, that's completely true. However, a rule of NSB says that: "Students who change their minds after this date will not be eligible to compete in the 2019 or 2020 National Science Bowl regional or national events." AKA if Ladue Sci Bowl don't compete at Sci Bowl Nationals -- None of the members (including myself) will be able to compete for the next 2 years. And there are no exemptions to this, so Ladue will most likely have a unjust disadvantage at State due to the decision to put the makeup date on the 28th (the other possible date they offered was the 5th of the May, but the majority probably said they wanted the tournament on the 28th). This is... quite a conflict -- I wish such next year that such conflicts would not present itself two days before the supposed tournament, and after the deadline for Sci Bowl nationals. :cry:

This is why I don't do anything other than SO.

I'd say it's likely. Although, missing people, even very good people, isn't a death sentence. The closest my team came to beating Brookwood at state was when we were missing two members last year.

Some random facts:
  • Without the events that didn't place, Ladue Middle would've gotten 41 points - the lowest score ever recorded
  • Ladue got 70 points, which means that roller coaster and WIDI combined made up 29 points
  • Thermodynamics in both divisions were thrown out because of bad proctoring
  • Ladue High was missing two of their best members
  • Pembroke High beat Ladue High by 13 points (61-74) while the middle schools had 69-70 - one point
  • There were $100 dollar scholarships for the winners of Battery Buggy and Mousetrap Vehicle, in honor of Alan Pringle

41 isn’t the lowest recorded score... unless you mean in Missouri? No, b/c Pembroke high got 26 at regional... State? For div B? Kinda confused as to what your point is in the first one. So what if they got a really low score when you don’t count the ones they did terribly on? We already knew Ladue High was going to be missing people. Lastly, every point counts... I’m sure Pembroke middle felt pretty good about edging their way to nationals by one point after having missed it by one point to wydown last year.

Kinda interested as to why Thermo got thrown out, what happened in the room and why they thought it was serious enough to toss it. It’s not like tossing events isn’t common, but still interesting to get the full scoop.

Here’s my two cents: congratulations to Pembroke High and Middle for their bid to nationals, and congrats to Ladue for their 2nd place finishes as well, that’s nothing to be shy about at all.

Oh and rip Alan Pringle
