Also, is Tompkins a strong school? I don't think they placed as a team as state last year, but here they are getting third at Cyfalls, no mean feat...
They got 5th at state last year, narrowly losing to TAMS. I think they're one of the best teams in Texas behind SL/LASA/Clements and only trending upwards, especially with the emergence of Tays. Within a few years I think they'll be contending for a spot at nationals[/quote]

What about TAMS? What are they looking like?

Tbh I'd be surprised if any school knocked off the Clements/LASA/7L trio anytime soon out of the top 3 at states, but it's nice to see Texas become a more competitive and nationally renowned state in SciO. Although idk if the strength of the middle school team really transfers over to the high school level, cuz I know a lot of the LASA team in '15 didn't do SciO at Kealing
It sure seems to be working for Seven Lakes though :)

Ok, so I go to Seven Lakes Junior High, and a lot of us are going to Tompkins, including me. However, Tays beat us at Cy-Falls, because most of the Tays team is from Woodcreek, and their current coach was the former Woodcreek coach so :/.

Wow, you guys really blew everyone else out of the water! (not that I didn't already have you guys at the top of my Nationals predictions)

probably still going to get second at state though.

ehhhhhhhh not really. None of the top three teams are anywhere close to full strength/stacked teams right now, and aside from MIT, there won't be any competitions that come close to a true representation of Texas. These results are meaningless in terms of ranking SL, LASA, and Clements
not that I didn't already have you guys at the top of my Nationals predictions
We have to make nationals first, which'll be hella tough by itself. Any two of Clements, LASA, and Seven Lakes could go to nationals this year; it's not nearly as clear cut as many people seem to think.

CyFalls is going down the drain...all of our new kids dont care about placing and feel no need to improve...........after this year we may even go to like 15th at state because all our seniors are leaving

*sigh* we used to be competitive, RIP :(

BUT, maybe that can change :/

So the school I competed for back in my day was actually in a similar situation a couple of years ago - we literally had a 12-year drought on qualifying for nationals and by the time I entered high school it was pretty rough/somewhat hopeless to some people...my freshman, sophomore, and junior years, we always spoke of trying to make nationals - the first two (frosh/soph), we had some pretty big mess-ups at state which put us into 6th twice, and reeeeeeeeally bad politics among our leadership then also irritated many strong members, in which a lot of them decided to quit. But we changed lots of things my junior year (my first year as a captain) that improved many of the aspects that were holding us back, and we managed to get 2nd, unfortunately that was the first time in years that they cut Indiana's second bid, which SUCKED. SO MUCH. (then again Munster HS is one of the biggest SciOly powerhouses in Indiana, and especially so in my time, so it would've been a long shot for first back then anyways) But seriously, despite that it didn't get us into nationals, getting second gave us hope that the next year, we could possibly win state and therefore, make it to nationals. Sure, there were some rocky starts, but we just kept working at it. Sure enough, we made it my senior year, and I'm sure the captains there right now are working hard to go back to nats again. The fact that we made it back after so many years of not being able to has really revived our program, as many people are interested in doing it, and I'm sure if you guys don't give up hope and continue working to achieve something great, you will be able to pull through ;)

In other words....

Just believe in yourselves! I know it sounds like a cat poster, but it's true :lol: I hope I didn't steal too much of Adi1008's thunder with that :?

(ergh I don't remember how to upload attachments/couldn't find the function to do that so I couldn't post the meme I made for that :( oh well...)

(not 100% sure if it's readble, so just ask if you want to know anything specifically)

Thank you to everyone at UT for running such a great tournament! We had a wonderful time and will definitely come back next year :)
