But yeah, Name is correct that only one team per school can go to nationals. Florida is a state with two bids that allows multiple teams per school to go to states, and it has in recent years (at least once, in 2015) had two teams from the same school place 1st and 2nd in overall team rankings. The 3rd place team got the second bid.
This was allowed early on: apparently H.B. duPont had 2 teams at 1986 and 1987 nationals.
