UT Invitational Results:

Division B
1. Beckendorff Junior High
2. Kraemer Middle School
3. Kealing Middle School

Division C
1. Seven Lakes High School
2. Clements High School
3. LASA

Full Results
Division B
Division C
1. Seven Lakes B (82)
2. Clements A (111)
3. Seven Lakes A (125)
4. LASA A (129)

This is really impressive for 7L, considering they seemed to be mostly unstacked (the difference between their A and B teams is largely due to a bizarre 26th place for Fermi by their A team, and their A team actually had more golds [5] than their B team [4]).

By manually stacking, I got a score of 53 for 7L (I put 0s on Wifi Lab and WGYN, which both A and B 0'd; and Science Word, which just B 0'd; but not WIDI, which just A 0'd, because their WIDI score [2] was better than their Science Word score [6]).

For Clements I got 71 using this method (again 0ing the two events both A and B 0'd as well as the worse of the two events 0'd by only one of the teams [WIDI B, 9th] while keeping the better of the two [Astronomy A, 2nd]).

LASA got a score of 108 using this method. LASA A and B 0'd the same events.

Of course, "manual stacking" is idealistic and teams can never be perfectly stacked while keeping the same number of members. Typically manually stacking skews in favor of schools with a high level of variability in their event scores within one team. It also tends to skew towards better-performing teams.

UT gave us a no show for fermi for some reason. This happened to us at regionals last year too and they fixed the results pretty quickly, hopefully they do the same now.

How did LASA and Clements do so poorly compared to how they usually do at invitationals?
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, water, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I'm learning stuff about oceanography, fossils, and writing/following instructions, yay for the third time!

The top 3 Texas teams (but especially LASA and Clements) often have underclassmen teams and such at in-state invitationals.

LASA never brings its "A team" to invitationals (why they do so much better at State/Regional than at invites), and this invite was the day of UIL Region Orchestra (big statewide orchestra organization), so they were probably missing a lot of people.
