It could happen, but I think other teams are a bit better equipped. Regardless, there does seem to be a fairly clear demarcation between the top 6 teams (Strath is in there based on history) and the rest of the field. Garnet Valley is the only other team I could see sneaking into 6th.
Yeah actually looking back at the regional scores, GV and Strath have a 1 point difference. But last year, GV got 98 points, and Strath got over 120, yet they still beat GV at states. I'm guessing Orefield got somewhere around 60 points at regionals this year, and that's if they placed an average of 8th in the 3 events they didn't medal in, compared to last year, where they got 65 points at regionals and 6th at states, beating GV by 50 points.
