All I gotta say is that New Trier came out guns a blazing doing wayyyyyyy better than I expected. Troy getting 1st was expected and seeing Mason getting kinda close to Troy proves that they are a force to be reckoned with. The biggest surprise came from West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North B if they truly went in unstacked as rumors have it. If you take them and manually stack them you have a score of 173 which ties them with Mason and they both have 13 medals so when you look at 1st places West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North beats Mason! Thus they could have placed 2nd overall if stacked! :o

That's not how stacking works. Typically, manually stacking overestimates the performance of the team in question.

Just saying. Clearly not how it works but still the potential of a stacked WWP-N could be huge.

I've thought about trying to develop a way to estimate a "true stacked" score that's a more accurate representation. I've considered just starting with the average of the stacked score and that school's best team score, but haven't actually done any real analysis of how that looks.

WWP High School together would actually be quite interesting. Anyone care to stack north and south together? I don't know how but I'm very curious on whether or not they would beat Troy.
