I felt like all my events were run really well. Definitely, the tests for Astronomy, Fossils, and Technical Problem Solving were hard enough that they would've been challenging for everyone (although I'm still kicking myself for not putting the subphylum for blastoids in the binder). I also really liked that Physics Lab was not just run as a building event: the test was one of the hardest things I've ever seen and I doubt that anyone who just worked on turbines would've done very well.
I guess the Bloomington Schools won by quite a margin but I do think that State was much more competitive this year on all levels. I don't have a copy of the full scores yet so this may be a bit premature, but I do feel like Northridge and Munster both had very strong showings. Also, correct me if I'm wrong but I think that Valpo's score would've been enough to win state last year if you keep in mind that in 2009, there were only 22 events included in the final scores.
I couldn't have hoped for a better state competition in my last year of Science Olympiad.
Finally, I know I can speak for the entire team when I say that we are absolutely thrilled to be one of the two schools to represent Indiana in Illinois and at this point, our goal is definitely a top 10 finish.

Congratulations to Thomas Jefferson and Wilbur Wright Middle School and good luck at Nationals!
