What happened to Archimidean B? Not even top 6?
For the future, it’s Archimedean not Archimidean. :P

Results :

Div C

1. Boca Raton CHS (82) (going to nats)
2. Boca Raton CHS Team 2 (121) (idk if going to nats or not)
3. Archimedean Upper Conservatory (159) (nats?)

Div B

1. Orlando Science School (72) (going to nats)
2. Orlando Science School Team 2 (188) (idk if going to nats)
3. River City Science Academy (193) (nats?)
The 2nd place school will get the bid. Both states are expected to retain their second bid, although if a few states have particularly large growth Div B has a small chance of losing the second bid.

Congrats to Boca Raton on a record score, and to Orlando Science - particularly B, where they historically haven't been as successful but put up a record score this year.

Congrats to Boca High's Team 1 on an amazing performance at States today! Boca medalled in 20 of their events with 8 gold medals (compared to 17 for Boca 2, and 13 (3 golds) for ArchSci A, which helped them on their path to being the only team that broke 100 points today. They've got lots of time to prepare for Nationals, where I believe they can get top 10, and probably higher considering they have such a talented, hard-working group of students.

Another huge congrats goes to Boca's Team 2: not only is this the best Boca High Team 1 ever, but this is clearly also the best Team 2 we've ever had. If no Seniors are selected to serve as alternates for Nationals (hopefully some are), they left their last competition going out on top. Their hard work and years of dedication helped make it clear that Boca is still competitive, and thriving, in our state. Although Boca's Team 2 won't get to go to Nationals, they're going to keep Boca relevant as a dominant national player for years to come.

I'm sure Archimedean isn't happy with 3rd, but it's good that they still get to compete at Nationals. Like I discussed with them this weekend, having an in-state rival is great for both our teams, and for the state of Florida as we get to challenge each other and keep our competitions somewhat interesting. We also agreed that it's great that these two teams get to represent Florida, and that Florida is being represented by the dominant Southeast division (4/6 top overall places today) at Nationals yet again.

I would also like to congratulate OSS for having a record score of 72 points. I don't know what they changed but they are dominant. It seems that if they stay on this pace they might be looking at possibly top 25 at Nats or even higher, which hasn't happened in years for a Floridian Div B team.

As someone who was part of the Gulf Breeze dynasty of teams, it really, really makes me happy to see how far Florida has come in Science Olympiad both in terms of participation and competitiveness.

Congrats to all of those who participated this year, and extra congrats to Orlando Science School and Boca Raton for their championships. Good luck at Nationals this year!

(Also does anyone know if there is a list of teams to correlate with the FSO scoring sheets with just team numbers... Or am I missing it somewhere? I'd like to see who all participated in regionals and states this year)
