Harlan Rowe is a little bit closer than Eagle Hill. Distance can mean whatever you want it to mean.
But like. What does it have to do with placings. I don't understand.

It's a minor factor. It doesn't play a major role. If I were you, I wouldn't worry too much about the single sentence I chose to say about each team.

I'm not worried, I just asked you to explain, which clearly you're not going to.

I've already explained more than I planned to, so you've got that going for you. :P

EDIT: Realizing now that my previous explanation could be interpreted a couple ways, here's a clearer explanation: I used all the factors I consider for every team, and distance is a minor factor. I brought up distance for those two teams because it's a good talking point, not because it affected their placement significantly.

Oh yeah that makes sense. I didn't think about that.

Got Bob Miller's score, so the rankings for 45th to 47th have been updated slightly.

FWIW, Solon took 1st place in 13 of the 23 events at Ohio State Competition. They are as close to unbeatable as it comes, barring a total melt down, or getting half the team stuck in an elevator. Tower Heights has been severely under-rated. I expect them to finish top 10 as well.
