Still waiting for my post count to return to its original number. This being four is depressing. Given that I don't have any social media accounts this was my one thing and now I have four posts. Fix it. I have faith in you and your 1257 posts.

Does this board even work any more? I will assume yes. So I got to spend the weekend at Elsinore High School for my son's water polo tournament, and I was wondering why it's Elsinore High even though it is not in the town of Elsinore (about 6 miles away)? I did like how Edison and Elsinore are both EHS Tigers.

Aaahhh. Why did the message board go down? I needed to vent....

So, CAD decides to put teams 11-20 in the morning judging for speech and interview. At the orientation, state director relays message from judges: "the scores always get better in the afternoon." Hmm. We lost 1489 in subjectives. My 2 varsity lost 498.3 in interview. Honors goes from 1000 to 810? While we were happy to beat University, we were hoping for top 10. When you go up 2800+ in objectives you'd like to think your chances are pretty good, but it wasn't to be. We missed out by 273 points. At least we beat UHS. Now if we could only figure out how to do it at regionals instead of at state (last two years).

Holy mackerel, that is an insane drop in subs. There's no way an Interview score that low could be warranted from one of your students... nor is there any good reason for the scores to inherently be better in the afternoon. That sounds infuriating. :/ That you managed to do so well though despite this is super impressive -- that is an insane objs leap!

What was your score without Super Quiz, if I may ask?
