Provided Mason stacks, and the WW-P schools do not:
5. Boca Raton
6. New Trier
7. WW-P North
9. WW-P South
10. Lower Merion
People like to dismiss recent success as possible fluke in the face of history/tradition. Some very informed people underrated Mason last year because it was going to be their first time at Nationals despite their success suggested otherwise. Those being said, i think the parity is increasing in Science Olympiad. The placements may be shaped mostly by who bombs what. This may sound silly, but I think Troy was not very active in invitationals and it may make them more likely to fail in some events. I would not be shocked if they don't get in top 3 this time.
