I thought that was kind of interesting how they both fell below expectations. But, as I dislike the Vols, it didn't really matter to me.

Best in terms of sports (sorry off topic)--PHILLIES WORLD SERIES!!!! :D :D :D :D

And before I forgot to mention my 6th grade year, where we got 7th at regionals, and back then PA Northeast regional sent 6 teams to states :| . Now it's 5.

At states our team DQ'ed in WIDI, Robocross broke the day before the competition (it got 2nd at regiaonals but got 26th at states), and our bridge came out pretty bad. But we still got to Nats.

Worst: Last year at States. We tried to go to Nats but it didn't work out.

Best: When I dislocated my kneecap the Friday of State and my team was impossibly nice and really banded together and helped me through it. I had Scrambler, which is the ultimate get-up-and-down event and my partner (tennislvr) was so encouraging and helped me through the not to fun pain. Thanks guys! :)

worst thing that ever happened was last year, our bus was cancelled to states(we still got there okay, but it was 2.5 hours late) and then on the way home from states the bus broke down around 10 PM and we had to wait until 11:30 for the new bus. Then, my dad fell asleep and didn't hear my phone calls telling him to pick me up. To make a long story short, I didn't get home until 4 AM!!!!

Best thing: I took 3rd at the same states (with EASTstroudsburg13) in Reach for the stars in my 1st year of scioly!! :D :D

worst thing that happenned this year was at states again: someone sat on our extremely fragile plane, broke it, and we had to fix it (we being yoyo science kid23 and hemi428)

Best thing: we placed 9th nonetheless!!!!!!!!!! :D :!: :!: :D
