2018-2019 Season

The 2019 season started off just like any other. Following trends much like the past two years, they consistently placed in the top 5 through most of the pre-State season. They again managed to swoop in and pick up first place at State, allowing them to progress on to Nationals for the second time. While they didn't beat their record of 60 points, they did place 31st at Nationals, two ranks higher, albeit with 21 more points. Additionally, they had medalists in Herpetology (1st Place) and Dynamic Planet (6th Place).

2017-2018 Season

The 2018 season started off fairly strong, showing promising performance which was better than the 2017 season. The program had also gained more traction within the school. They attended two more invitationals and placed better in the three that they returned to. At Regionals, the once again placed 1st. While the previous year would suggest another slim loss (116 points versus 107 points from the 1st place team), Blue Valley North won overwhelmingly at State, beating the 2nd place team by 57 points and setting a new state record for score: 60 points. At Nationals, as per usual for Kansas teams, BVN was in the middle of the pack at 33rd place. However, they did medal in one event, Herpetology.
