Well, Mason lost to Troy. Although it is expected, still a little bit disappointed. The "Write it Do it" did not pull a surprise as they did in the state.

gg and rip my Div predictions

Although, in Div C I think I got the top 7 overall exactly right, and around 180 in event predictions.

Interestingly, the 3rd place teams in both divisions had less medals than is typical for their scores and ranks - Harriton with 7 and Community with 5. Notably, Community finished between 7th and 11th in 13 different events.

Awards was a roller coaster from start to finish. The score predictor spreadsheets had us between 6th and 15th at various times. Many events we hoped to medal in...we didn't. In the end though, consistency did pay off.

Lots of teams showed great consistency in the tournament. Enloe and Camas each has 3 medals but placed in 10th and 11th

Are scores of 396 / 395 / 394 / 393 normal at Nationals... That closeness seems insane to me

It's certainly uncommonly close. I don't recall seeing three 1-point gaps before.

He retired recently enough that you might be able to get contact info from someone at his former school.
