No way. Tower Heights more than doubled Solon's state score and lost to them at almost every invitational by a significant margin (especially at competitive invitationals such as Centerville, where they lost by over a hundred points to both Solon and Daniel Wright). There state score hasn't improved from last year (it's worse by more than 20 points) and though they will definitely still be in the top 20 and potentially top 15, it's really doubtful that they can make top 10.
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, freshwater, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I know stuff about oceanography, saltwater, birds, and fossils, yay for the third time!

Don't really agree with this. There are a lot of very good teams that may be in the top 10, but I don't think Tower Heights is one of them.

'08 or thereabouts, Solon HS lost a Nationals bid because of this.

Based on a clarification I got regarding the NH scoresheet, Walpole's placement in my rankings has been updated to 48th. All other teams have been kept in the same order.

Wow that’s really unfortunate. :? Hopefully it won’t happen to anyone else.

Rumors abound... but I've heard that Solon kids are no longer allowed to take an elevator to get to their events, just to avoid that possibility... True?

Why do you expect Daniel Wright to be weaker than in the last three years? In addition, Marie Murphy was trailing Daniel Wright by about 30 points at IL State and got 24 in Thermodynamics (and I can attest to the fact that the test was WAY too easy. I wouldn’t even give it at invite or regionals.) I would expect MM to be trailing DWJHS very closely, and I think that there is a small chance that MM will outrank DWJHS.
