Nope, NY C has 55 and MI has 60 in each division (the latter of which I believe is the standing record).

woah...

Doubt it. Massachusetts had 55 :P

MA doesn't have regionals though right?, so does it really count? :P

Yay! We haven't had snow for more than a month, so this comes as a huge surprise, especially towards the end of March. (Heh, I remember complaining about a lack of snow just about 30 random comments ago :D )

It looks like Troy's 1996 Nationals victory came with a score of exactly 188, which appears to be the first provable sub-200 score at Nationals.

Okay, I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I have to say it given last night’s press release and announcements by SOINC:

I get the appeal of expanding Science Olympiad, but it makes NO SENSE that Ohio is now losing its second bid just because Puerto Rico wants to send a team this year. Ohio has some of the top teams in the entire country, there are literally 4+ teams in Ohio that could easily place top 15 at nats (3 of them top 10) and the fact that now only ONE WILL GO — just because some teams in Puerto Rico want to — is INSANE. This should not be allowed.

soinc has announced that Texas C is getting its second slot back, but its first slot has been taken away.
