It'll be interesting to see how CCA stacks up with other nats teams, considering they've never been to nats in recent years. Also quite curious as to see how the three TX and three OH teams will stack up against each other, Solon and Mason unstacked at MIT so we can't be sure if they'll do the same again here.

I don't believe CCA has ever been to Nats and will for sure be interesting to see how good they do, considering how good they do against Troy alone.

Yeah, hard to make nats when you have a troy-shaped roadblock in your path

25 more days until BEARSO! My top 10 superscored predictions for Division C:

1. Troy (CA-S)
2. Mountain View (CA-N)
3. Canyon Crest (CA-S)
4. Solon (OH)
5. Seven Lakes (TX)
6. Mira Loma (CA-N)
7. Monta Vista (CA-N)
8. Lynbrook (CA-N)
9. Glen A. Wilson (CA-S)
10. Westview (CA-S)

Most of this is a shot in the dark considering that west coast and east coast teams have competed in separate universes so far, save for Troy making nationals. I pretty much estimated California teams' rankings based on Golden Gate, and dropped Solon and Seven Lakes near the top for good measure. Exciting to say the least!

The main east coast exclusions I see are Mason, Centerville, WWPN, LASA, Clements, and Boca Raton here. California is certainly a competitive state, but I think this goes a little far. Granted, I have no idea how things have changed since last season, but if I was ranking based on perceived strength from last season my top 10 power ranking would probably look something like this:
  1. Troy
  2. Solon
  3. Mountain View
  4. Mason
  5. Seven Lakes
  6. Centerville
  7. West Windsor Plainsboro North
  8. Mira Loma
  9. Canyon Crest Academy
  10. LASA
