For the record, this is due to Google Sheets sorting the list of schools in a slightly different way than the source they are imported from. The canonical list of schools is located here:

Will issues with the default top X teams for medals be resolved? For most tournaments, top 6 teams get medals, so it doesn't make sense for tournaments to give out five or three, even if it was ratioed to the amount of teams attending.

I am not sure this is true. If you could send me a list of tournaments that do award medals to top 6, I can manually override the default medal values for those. I'm hesitant to choose 6 as a default mainly because it over-saturates results for smaller tournaments like this one with color.

Btw, an update on the scoring system: once again I got really into improving the results display before starting work on the actual scoring portion, but I think the output is a significant improvement (particularly for iOS) over what we have currently. You can preview it here: https://zqianem.neocities.org/output.html. Any feedback is welcome!

This isn't really about the results display, but the 2019 FL State Tournament was held at UCF, not UF. Also Archimedean Upper Alpha qualified for the Nationals tournament as well as Boca Raton Team 1.

I believe most Washington tournaments (with the exception of the Northwest Regional) give out medals for top four: https://scioly.org/wiki/images/4/40/WA_ ... esults.pdf

Is this defining "medals" as just any award given to competitors, including ribbons? Or just physical medals?

Not that it matters at the moment as AFAIK there aren't any Missouri tournaments on Unosmium at the moment (yet) but every Missouri tournament I've been to gives out medals for the top three, and ribbons for fourth and fifth.

All New Jersey competitions give out top 6. I believe PA Regionals gives out top 4, and PA States give out top 6.
MIT gives out top 6.
LISO C gives out top 10, B gives out top 6.
Princeton gives out top 6.
Conestoga gives out top 5.
SOUP gives out top 6.
Cornell B/C gives out top 6.
