Fawkes is bad at scioly

Fawkes has competed in Science Olympiad since 6th grade in the 2016-2017 season, when he competed for the now defunct team from Decatur Classical Elementary. Since then, he has competed for the Whitney Young Academic Center team in 7th - 9th grade, and now competes for the Whitney Young High School team, all of which are located in Illinois. In each of his years competing, he has been fortunate enough to participate in the state tournament, although he has yet to win a state medal.

2016-2017 (6th grade)

No data from this year could be collected.

Summary

This was my first year of scioly, and I have some vague memories of attempting to build something for Wright Stuff. However, I clearly remember that my team placed 6th at the CPS regional, meaning we advanced to the state tournament, and everybody was super excited about going on a coach bus. My events were Wind Power and Wright Stuff and maybe something else I can't remember...

2017-2018 (7th grade)

Results

No data from this year could be collected.

Summary

However, I know that I at least got a third place medal at the CPS regional tournament. Also, this year I was accepted to the Whitney Young Academic Center, which usually placed first or second at regionals. My events were Mystery Architecture, Battery Buggy and Rocks and Minerals. I was one of the worst people on the team and maybe got 2 or 3 medals all year, in part because I basically had no idea what I was doing. Especially in Battery Buggy. We don't talk about Battery Buggy.

2018-2019 (8th grade)

Results

Event Rockford Christian University of Chicago CPS Regionals Illinois States
Heredity 5th 1st 3rd 6th
Meteorology 3rd 3rd 2nd 6th
Mystery Architecture 32nd 21st 3rd 27th*
  • At Illinois states 2019, Mystery Architecture was improperly run, leading to its designation as a trial event

Summary

I improved a lot this year, in part due to having partners that I communicated with more as well as generally getting better and improving, taking more practice tests etc. I also learned that testing events were what I was best at so I stuck to that next year. This year was a lot of fun, despite me missing two states medal by one placing each (medals were 5th place and up), so I vowed to get a stated medal next year.

2019-2020 (9th grade)

Summary

This year, since I was a 9th grader in Div B, I was doing the best that I ever had. I was getting plenty of medals, and my partners were really good as well. Unfortunately, our regional competition was canceled a few days before it happened because of Covid-19. I was really upset as I had a good chance of getting all golds at regionals and getting three states medals. However, there's nothing I could do about it except to focus on next year; for the 2020-2021 season I move to Div C, so this should be interesting.
