In Southern California, it depends on the regional. Orange County and San Diego allow multiple teams from the same school to compete. Inland Empire and Los Angeles don't. But at the State Tournament, each school can only send 1 team.

But I think that is true in other states. Maybe in California? I think I read something about that.
I think Georgia too.

Yes, Georgia. Up to 3 teams per school for Regionals, top 28ish schools then send 1 team each to State.

Lack of space? Georgia does separate Div C and B Regionals for a total of 11-12 competitions. Also we have open regionals, so schools list their 1 through 3 location choices and the State Director can balance the numbers if needed.

Maybe. What I was thinking was that teams maybe weren't big enough. I don't know that many teams that have 2 or more teams.

I know in Ohio they allow multiple teams at regionals, but not states.

I think in some states that allow multiple teams at states...

I don't think that is allowed at states. It might also be unfair if both the teams from one school win, and two teams are allowed to go from that state. That way only 1 school would go and it wouldn't be as exciting.

That is quite true, havenguy. You must be right. In Michigan, Lakeshore Middle School and White Pines Middle School both feed into Grand Haven High School. It must not be fun for every team at states except for those guys and West Ottawa, heh

States with small numbers of teams allow multiple teams from one school at the state tournament. They only send one team per division on to Nationals anyway.
