Mira Loma results:

Troy A 120
Troy B 140
Mtn View 180
Northwood 190
Monta Vista 219
Glen A Wilson 227

I believe Troy's scores were lower last year in this tourament, and Mtn View too. I was talking to one of the Troy Mentors and he implied that their team is not as strong (at least now) as last year and that they have work to do.

That does seem a little worse for them. Depends how the breakdown is of course, but I would have expected 30-40 points less.

I looked at 2018 score sheet, and Troy's results were 106 and 113. Mtn View was around 160. Northwood wasn't in the tournament last year (one of the better teams in SoCal), so perhaps one reason.

Surprised no one is considering Stevenson because dwjhs has gotten 3 nats wins and by now they are all in Stevenson. They also did pretty darn good at Palatine.

I understand your point, but doesn't DWJHS only have 2 nats wins?

From what I've heard and seen Troy splits their teams and has people soloing events at invitationals, so from this, I would say that it makes quite a difference when you have a team with solos getting 1st and 2nd. Idk anyone else got thoughts?

A new post-MIT prediction:

1) Solon
2) Troy
3) Acton-Boxborough
4) Mason
5) 7L
6) Mounds View
7) Mira Loma
8) Harriton
9) Boca Raton
10) WWPN

It may seem a little crazy, but I don't think it's entirely unreasonable.

MIT showed that LASA and Clements have definite weaknesses this year, so I think 7L will make it out of TX again. Additionally, Harriton had an extremely sub-par performance, so I think they'll take a heavy drop.

Meanwhile Acton-Boxborough and Boca Raton had outstanding performances, so I'd expect them to jump.

Mason is supposedly weaker this year, and there are rumors that Troy is too (mainly I just want to see Troy fall). Solon is the only top 4 team from last year that appears to have maintained its strength, so I think they'll take the title.
