Only last year's results seem to be publicly available on Ezratech. Does anyone have a photo of this year's results?

I had a great experience everywhere except for Wright Stuff. There were so many things wrong with how it was run I don't even think I could fit it in a post.

The boomi auto loader was filled with gravel/rocks, and the right one was filled with wet sand.

Other than that, all the other events were really well run.

In general, if you go around breaking people's building devices, get mouthy with judges, etc.

There are also event-specific disqualifications as well.

The B results are pretty standard, besides noting that Community continues to perform very well. The C results are relatively normal for the most part - WW-P North is on track to end up much like last year. Notably, Ward Melville and especially Syosset both performed very well.

I was surprised that Lower Merion wasn't top 5, and neither was Rustin... is there a reason for that?
Last year I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Now I know stuff about amphibians, reptiles, water, and more experiments, yay again!
I'm planning to learn stuff about oceanography, fossils, water, and birds, yay for the third time!

If we look at their scores, they both brought two teams, and each school seemed to have split up their strongest members among both teams (maybe for experience). Just speculation though.

Later in the invitational season, I have no doubts that Rustin and Lower Merion will place higher.

Manually stacked and dropped 3 events rustin scored 185 (3rd) and LM 194 (4th).
Although if no events (for any team) were dropped they would place a bit lower even when stacked due to A and B sometimes bombing the same event
South Woods MS (5 medals)/Syosset HS (24 medals)
Favorite Past Events: Microbe, Invasive, Matsci, Fermi
Next Year: Astro, Code, hopefully Orni, and maybe Compound
2018-19 highlights
mit- 1st code, 3rd fermi
cornell- 1st fermi
states- 1st fermi, 3rd astro, 3rd code
19 medals
