Ah. In that case, I actually do understand. My freshman science teacher was just like that to me, to the point of almost destroying all my love for science (my current teacher is a lot like that, too). Thank Heaven for amazing biology teachers.

Just don't let her bother you too much. I hope you don't have her as a teacher again.

I will next year for social studies. AND she's the main SO coach at my school. I'm even considering quitting the team.

Sorry, just had to do that.

Anyway, good luck!
How does she deduct points unfairly? I've seen lots of teachers deduct points for stupid reasons, but usually those cuts are universal.

The rules kinda differ for each state.

In Minnesota, we have the Minnesota High School Quiz Bowl League, which runs 3 meets a year for 4 separate divisions based on regions. In each meet, each team has 4 games, coming to a total of 12 for the season. For the first meet usually, we'll have random matches, but A teams usually play A teams, B teams play B teams, so on and so forth. For the 2nd and 3rd meets, they become power matches, and your ranking decides who you play. For example, my team currently is 4-0. We will be playing the other 4-0 teams in our division. So on and so forth.

The top 4 teams in each division move onto the State Meet (kokonilly/luo correct me if I'm wrong.) bringing a total of 16 teams in the competition, and I do believe the state meet is double elimination.

The main goal is qualifying for nationals, and if you qualify for state, you automatically get qualified for nationals (which doesn't guarantee you a spot. You still need to register before the meet fills up.) There are also invites, which if under NAQT rules, can qualify teams for nationals.

I hope that answers your question.

That sounds right, though if I recall correctly we only played one match at state (and lost), hung around for a bit and talked to some people ( :P ), and left - so did we leave early, or is it not double-elimination?

Actually I was confused about that too. I just recall Mr. Hentzel saying this year during our meet that the state competition was double elimination.
