Marie Murphy has nothing on Daniel Wright. I expect Nationals will end up much like 2016 did (though I think Daniel Wright is weaker than they were at that time).
I doubt it. While Daniel Wright got a lot of firsts, they're not very consistent. Marie Murphy got 3 firsts (one of them being the one that made them lose last year LOL), but the rest (save Game On, Thermo, and WIDI) are consistently medaling. Consistency is key; after all, that's what brought a lot of teams down (like Bay Academy this year, Beckendorff at nats 2018, probably more that i'm not thinking of)
Solon at Cornell maybe.

When predicting higher-level tournaments using lower-level results, number of gold medals tends to be a far better predictor of success than relative point scores.

Neither anat, buggy, circuit, density, dynamic, mystery, or solar.

My point is, a team will not become extremely good without being consistent. Last year, for example, we were 11th in terms of medals. However, we had a TON of 7th-10th places and relatively few bombs.

I think (you guys?) will do better than that, all depends on bombs.
