Daniel Thomas and Blake Stacy got top 6, I dont know the exactly place. Robbie's team got between 6th and 13th. I believe those are the farthest.

A lot of the teams there are all state teams so it's sort of hard for a school team such as ourselves to do very well.

Oh yeah, I just realized that I haven't actually congratulated ASFA yet. Well, congratulations! Have fun at Disney World. The actual Panasonic competition is absolutely awful, but the accomodations and the parks are great; I'm sure you guys will have a great time.

Jon and I are graduating. I'd be careful to count us out though, our highest scorer this year was Charlie (a sophomore). He outscored me at ASCA district, regional, and state.

I agree 100% with DJ. It wasn't that the questions were bad (though a few were ambiguous) but that there were multiple answers to several of the questions and the readers generally didn't use their discretion.

Congrats. As for Huntsville A, CCA totally stomped us first round of the playoffs. We were leading going into the final period but I think they got something like 8 of the last 10 tossups; it was quite amazing.

School name: Grissom

Scholar's bowl period?: No

We practice after school twice a week.

No attendance requirements.

Outside work? Not really.

Our math team is pretty good.

Yes, all 3 schools that feed into Grissom have fairly strong Scholar's bowl programs.

I'm not saying that you can't learn high level math and science as an underclassman. I'm just saying that it's definitely an advantage to have covered some of that stuff in a classroom setting.

Also, the US histories definitely are invaluable.

I agree 100% with David. There are certain things that 10th graders just don't know; in particular, high level math and science. Upperclassmen also tend to have control over history questions. As for what I think Grissom's main weakness this year is...it has to be fine arts. For the past three years...

Grissom beat LAMP. Springs, LAMP, and Grissom each have one loss (ISS beat Grissom, Grissom beat LAMP, LAMP Beat springs) So far, springs has highest point total, Grissom had second, and LAMP is third. Unfortunately, the pools are pretty lopsided.

If a team that can't make it drops out, I think they take the highest scoring (ppg) wild card. So for CCA to make it, they would have had to outscore the other three wild card teams.
