Clearly, I've never been to Singapore...

i'm glad it wasn't the US for a treble. competitions suck when one team dominates for eva (see: USAD, california)


Yeah...Singapore won about 75% of the medals, and had 8 of the top 11 senior teams, and 7 of the top 10 junior teams. Pretty much domination.

If Pearland wins, then yay. If Dobie wins, then yay. If Cinco Ranch wins, however, I will pull my hair out and jump into a vat of tar :P

It is every decathlete's job to take this as a guarantee.

that is also weak. let's fix that next year, america.

REDEEM TEAM.


YEAH

GONNA STUDY THOUGH, CUZ THAT HELPS. Apparently the Singapore teams started studying in November...so picking up after decathlon is over doesn't really put a dent in the studying we'd need.

The top scorer (as I understand it without Scholar's Bowl counting) was at 8500.

Also, though we were all speaking English, we were speaking something radically different from everyone else, and were pretty hard to understand in debate, though we did well enough in essay and speaking in the showcase.

You probably forgot to insert an absurd amount of giggling into your rebuttals...

Ah, well congratulations to her for that. I may have been thinking of the top junior division score, or may have been totally off laugh.gif
