I heard something about Notre Dame putting in a bid for a state tournament in a few years? Any truth to that?Hey Indiana!!
I am a freshman at the University of Notre Dame who is actually from NY. I've competed in the Western Long Island Regional 6 times (twice in Div B and four times in Div C) as well as the NYS Science Olympiad four times (two times in each division). I have also served as an event supervisor in the Div B competition while competing at the Div C level.
To be perfectly honest, this past year without Science Olympiad has been pretty boring so I'm trying to take on a new task. It is my intention to host a regional competition at the University of Notre Dame as soon as next year (2012). However, before I approach the university and ask for its permission, I wanted to see if you had any information that you think I should know.
I come from a regional where I compete in a single Division C competition where 70+ teams compete for 7 spots to the state tournament. From what I heard, in Indiana, regionals host both divisions the same day and only host a max of 12 teams per division. I'd also love to know what you all love about your regionals and wish could be improved on! I truly feel that UND would be great for a SciOly competition and I want to see if you feel the same way! Please post! I promise to read!
Your Fellow Science Olympaid (and hopefully Regional Coordinator),
What regionals are you heading to?Can't wait for regionals. This will be my first.
I don't know a whole lot about it, but here's the gist. In Indiana, 1 (sometimes 2) schools move on from regionals to state. But then the team that was one away from going to state goes to the wildcard tournament. At the wildcard tournment, composing of one team from each of the regionals, the team that wins overall gets to move on to state as well. They do it because some regionals are more competitive than others and they wanted to make it more fair for those that got an unlucky bid.Wildcard tournament? There's such a thing as a wild card in SO?
