They've been competing since at least 2004, and their team merged with Villa around 2010.


I always thought they were relatively new since even my first year in 2012, they were not a very good team and only really competed at locals from what I recall. Looks like my estimation skills are a bit off...

You would've thought my team three years ago was new. Building and rebuilding are very similar processes.


Probably, but I'd thought that since they never made it to State until 2013, and it's not incredibly difficult to get to that level here in PA, compared to other big states.

But oh well, hat's off to them.


Think of the ASL competitions, and think of how many teams make it to state. You've got what, 6/25? It's not hard, no, but not everyone does it. Not even close.

Congratulations to the seven Decathletes who broke into the California-dominated e-nationals overall awards!

William Lake, Highland Park, TX - 3rd Large School Honors
Andrew Hall, McDowell, PA - 3rd Large School Scholastic
Koltin Kislia, Watertown, WI - 1st Medium School Varsity
Olivia Bannister, Erie Catholic Prep, PA - 3rd Medium School Varsity
Jacob Taciuch, Moniteau, PA - 2nd Small School Scholastic

Alex Hotovy, Mt Michael Benedictine, NE - 3rd Small School Scholastic
Adam Terasinski, Mt Michael Benedictine, NE - 2nd Small School Varsity


Bolded because that's just awesome for my state, for each team at E-Nationals to have a kid overall. And that was Erie Catholic Prep's first time ever competing in a Round 4 event. Their team is I think around ~3-4 years old, this year was only their 2nd time ever at a state competition. I bet their coaches Dobson, Ng, and Sister Francis are just ecstatic for that kind of performance!

Also Marin, you put the Mount Michael state as PA. laugh.gif

PS has a child with WTF:
I stopped going to one of my classes mid semester, did zero homeworks, and took none of the tests.
I got an A.

So we were talking about the movement speed of tank-based armies in WWII, and I immediately started wondering how long it takes the tanks to siege. I think Starcraft is starting to go to my head.

I just beat Ian in 4/5 Starcraft II matches, and it's worth noting that I did something very stupid for the hell of it in game 4 and still almost won.

Ian sucks.

NP: AP-style tests in AP classes really need to be graded the way the AP Exam is. Today I found out I'd gotten an 8 on an AP Lang essay and had to listen to my teacher ramble about how amazing any score above a 5 is while knowing that the 90 recorded in the gradebook is rotting my class rank. Sometimes I want to give up on good grades and just be a Decathlete.

I don't even care about my rank anymore, but this year, my parents do.
