Prediction time

1. Troy A
2. Harriton
3. Solon A
4. LASA
5. Seven Lakes A
6. Solon B
7. Columbia
8. ABRHS A
9. Mason A
10. ABRHS B
11. Mentor B
12. Chattahoochee
13. Clements
14. Mason B
15. Mentor A
16. Troy B
17. Boca Raton A
18. Ward Melville A
19. Conestoga A
20. Newton South

A lot of people feel low, but that's because the top echelon is super stacked (I could see anyone in top 15-18 getting top 6 tbh)

Going to make the prediction that all OH teams are basically unstacked and that Troy is going to stack
Why would anyone bring unstacked teams to MIT, though? I know that my team definitely would stack if we had to go against teams like this.
Solon and Mentor essentially never stack during what they call the "regular season". There are certainly advantages to not stacking.

Also, I'd say Troy B is a little low, and Newton South is too high. The latter, well, see last year's scores (they finished below 30th). The former, summing Solon's lower rank in each event from last year gives a score of 416, which would have been good enough for 11th place.

I'm definitely being a little over optimistic about Newton South but hey, MA pride lol

As for Troy B, I honestly didn't know where to put them

I think that Troy'll stack going off their invitationals this year, so I'd put Troy B around 8th because, well, it's Troy.

Waterville AND Waynflete?

nice
...that's your only comment? :P
Looking at Waynflete's state win last year and considering how they both seem rather competitive taking their teams to a high stakes tournament like MIT, I'd wager Waynflete may not be so keen on dropping their nats bid if they win Maine again this year. Truly could result in a shakeup of the top 5 at nats this year.

As for MIT predictions, I only believe in making predictions as to the quality of others' predictions:

1. EastStroundsburg13 (and no that wasn't a typo)
2. The team list in order
3. Unome
4. Kenniky

If you count DC, the team list includes teams from 18 states - the largest amount for MIT so far (past years were 16 and 17).

Edit: 19 states, since St. Johnsbury is from Vermont. :D

17. Clements (tend to underperform at MIT)
I'd be shocked if Clements is anything worse than 7th-8th; they're coming off a 6th place finish at nationals.
