Does anyone have results, i mean someone must have thought of looking at results of new york states before 2007, see how schools had done?

The state website has back to '03 I believe. But nothing further. Bah might have back to '00, but you'll have to ask him.

I only have 2008-present and 2004. Those are the only ones you can get off the website, I believe.

I think they're looking for the full results, with the scores of every team and specific event scores.

I don't know if those would be on record, but I think you can find an event list from that year on soinc.org.

It's pretty interesting to see what the first set of events was, and how different it is from today.

Past National Tournament results from all years can be found at http://soinc.org/past_tournament_results

It's pretty interesting to scan through and see the 'rise and fall' of different states and schools.

I've been bouncing around the idea of trying to convert all those into a database / spreadsheet to look at various trends, but it'd be a lot of work. Perhaps this is a crowdsource type thing that others would be interested in helping out with?
