I'm sure it's our charm, wit, and determination. Possibly also the Northmont results, which I take with a cubic meter of salt.

Actually my primary motivation was the Northview results, which are stronger than I would have expected.

Simply based on point values we were worse (although I am a pessimist). Also, you can ignore DontWorryAboutIt from "Northville"

Probably their low 50s at the two NorCal comps so far and at Mesa Wilson So-Cal they beat JT by ~20 and had to do Code Busters instead of Game On (23 of their 116 points) due to the SoCal switch at that event. Kennedy should be a threat to win this year.

I do agree that Kennedy will be in the top 3 but when I made that statement, Kennedy had only been to one invitational, and though they had won I wasn't sure that would be enough for such a good nationals result. But now, and as they go to more invitationals, I think they'll definitely match Churchill's past results at nationals.
Last year I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Now I know stuff about amphibians, reptiles, water, and more experiments, yay again!

Ohhh ok. Mason did not have any upper classmen compete except maybe one competing so take those results with a grain of salt.

I agree, however I’m wondering whether Solon had a large number of experienced people as well for that tournament?
