smh why do all these big teams say that they're "weak" yet go to nats anyways (looking at you ssa div b kids)
on another note congrats to shady side at cmu, and cumberland valley for seeming to do p well (to me at least) at conestoga!
The reason people say Harriton is weaker this year is primarily because they finished 11th at MIT (for comparison, Bayard Rustin was 12th). That said, they bombed several events so they're probably still substantially ahead of everyone else. We'll see how future invitationals go.
I've heard that Harriton had a strong senior class of builders last year... Though, by looking at previous years' Nationals placings, it seems that they've never been consistent with build events.
