Our school population is like 600, have about 13 kids TOTAL show interest in SciOly. We don't get money for our academic clubs either.

590 Ben, I'd know... I'm the prez :D

Ten years ago, in 2000, the school had probably 900 kids. In 1990 it had about 1500. Now it was 590 and the number continues to drop every year.

Woah, that is soo not true. The average household income is $ 27,000, which isn't even close to being the poorest in the US....

All right, lets just stop arguing, no one is right or wrong here.

Obviously, our teams are very alike but due to external factors, they perform differently.

Im sorry to hear about your school and your town, it's really depressing that in 20 years the schools population went from 1500 to 600...

Colby doesn't give us anything, just makes us look like we have money.

haha well they gave the track team 20,000$ and Scio what 200$? haha so lame. Colby seriously hates us, I think Colby is the only thing keeping the city alive.

It's also probably why we win states every year. We have professor children who tend to be intelligent and many of whom are on the Scio team.
