Springhouse beat Solon at Solon Invy.

After Springhouse's performance at Solon, I'd think that Springhouse will still win out over Bay Academy (but i might just be biased cause same school district)


I wouldn't agree that Springhouse's Solon performance accurately represented their actual performance. They weren't nearly as good at LISO, Rustin, and Garnet, placing 3rd, 3rd, and 2nd, always behind either Gelinas or Community. However, I think that they would still perform well enough to beat out Bay Academy, whether the gap be large or small.

I don't think it's as much that Springhouse's Solon performance doesn't accurately represent their actual performance, but that their performance is a little overstated due to where Solon placed. I think Springhouse's performance relative to the other schools that were present (Solon itself notwithstanding) is about in line with their previous performances.

Springhouse bombed a lot LISO, Rustin, and Garnet though.

LISO: 12, 15, 17
Rustin: 49, 52 :?:
Garnet: 17, 20, 21
Solon: Springhouse got 24 and 18 as their worst placements. Solon got 41, 32, and 27 - unusual, as they won exdesi, got 2nd in mystery, and 1st in roller at northmont. They also did extremely well in these events at Centerville. In addition, all of these events are the type that are easy to bomb. I'd say it's just bad luck tbh.

Yeah, I agree that such events are easy to mess up (as I have seen occur on my team too), but Springhouse has been crushing it more and more recently! I believe that it'll be a very close race between Bay, Springhouse, and Solon, and I can't wait for it! Best of luck to everyone attending Harvard!

Solon isn't going to Harvard. In addition, results such as Centerville show how strong Solon truly is. They beat out 50(!!!) other teams and HALVED Daniel Wright's score. Notable teams at Centerville include Daniel Wright, Magsig, Marie Murphy, Meads Mill, Piedmont, Slauson, and Tower Heights - all of which have placed extremely well at Nationals before. Sure, amazing teams screw up sometimes. It happens to everyone.

Between Bay and Springhouse though, it is extremely likely that they will go within 30-40 points at Harvard. There's only 32 teams, and one bomb could be the difference between winning and getting second.

Yeah, that's true. Even though Springhouse has always beat Bay, our team is determined to put our all into getting first! Once again, best of luck to everyone attending!

I'm just wondering if we should bring boxes with the usual items on the requred lab equipment list since there will be no wet labs for CB and PP.
