Nine points is not considered close in NJ. Two years ago we won by a point.

Actually the winner in NJ hasn't often won by less than 10 points. The only other time besides 2019 (9 points) and 2017 (1 point) was 2015, when North defeated South by 4 points, 2010, when South defeated Princeton by 9 points, 2004, when Montgomery defeated The Lawrenceville School by 8 points, and 2003, when the same thing happened by 3 points. . The average margin of victory have been around 30 to 40 points, so this year is somewhat abnormal in terms of how little the winning team won by.

What i actually find more abnormal is that the winning team didnt drop a single event. That doesnt seem very common.

NJ should get two bids for both divisions.

That would really give teams that aren't WWP or Community some motivation.

To be fair, Monty is already pretty close to us. If you look at least year's results, http://njscienceolympiad.org/tournament ... esults.pdf , they were 29 points away from CMS, and the HS was 7 points from 2nd place, 27 away from 1st.

Let's not forget 2017 C; Montgomery almost won by 1 point

But I mean like, this year Monty MS was 3rd but 115 points behind Community (20 behind Grover) and Monty HS was 76 behind WWPS (67 behind WWPN)...

North and South in C have come first in States for a while, and obviously Community in B, and I'm not saying that having more bids wouldn't be encouraging for more schools, but really, the gap between them and the other teams isn't that huge all the time. The gap between North in 1st and South in 2nd last year was much, much larger than that between South in 2nd and Monty in 3rd. If South can improve by that much (or recover from tournament irregularities and whatever else they're gonna blame their loss on) by that much in one year, I really don't see why Monty or another team couldn't do the same.
