Hey everyone, so we have our first set of meets in places like Texas and Cali. Most of the schools are using USAD Easy, but I do know some meets are using Xathlon as well. The Houston-area one at Morton Ranch is this week, Rockwall is next weekend, and then the Marshall Fall Classic in L.A. is using Xathlon next week, and Lubbock will be using it next week. Time to finally see what the field looks like!

All I can speak about is Dulles, and I think we will be okay. Lots of depth at every category, so hopefully we can see some success at these meets.

The Evil Doctor Calculus is also using Xathlon Easy for their "mini-scrimmages" that are broken into two separate dates, but I don't know which schools participate with CDO for those.

Excited to see how the landscape looks this year!

Should be fun. I am excited to see the results. This is always the most fun part of the year. Rockwall doesn't have a ton of depth but the kids who need to be stepping up seem to be stepping up so I am hoping for some greatness. Good luck to all schools!

So Dulles competed this weekend. This was by far the hardest set of Easy tests I've ever seen. We had accidentally taken the Easy Math a month earlier as a diagnostic, which I didn't realize was the Easy test until about two weeks before the meet. Because of that, our math score didn't count for the meet, which put us at 5th at the meet with 28,340. Add in the math from a month ago, and we would have won with a 33,911. The math test was incredibly easy- there were probably a hundred people who placed top 5 not including our students. The rankings down below would be there place at the meet if we would have added our math score in.

Team score- 33,911

Honors
Sophie (12)- 6,211 (3rd)
Adarsha (12)- 5,711
Surya (11)- 5,583
Robert (11)- 5,500
Lana (11)- 5,020
Ose (11)- 4,954
Sai (11)- 4,731

Scholastic
Simon (12)- 5,983 (1st)
Deep (12)- 5,963 (2nd)
Alan (12)- 5,611 (4th or 5th)
Ethan (12)- 5,400
Matthew (12)- 5,397
AJ (12)- 5,171
Johan (11)- 5,131
Olivia (12)- 5,020
Victoria (11)- 4,734
Abdullah (11)- 4,617
Ahona (11)- 4,594
Emily (12)- 4,277
Anya (11)- 4,243
Sugero (11)- 4,214

Varsity
Davis (12)- 5,077 (1st)
Logan (12)- 4,966 (2nd)
Ali (12)- 4,517 (possibly 5th)
Alex (11)- 4,303
Rachel (12)- 4,017
Khalid (11)- 3,900

Math- 5,571
Music- 5,200
Econ- 4,840
Science- 4,880
Lit- 3,240
Art- 4,760
SoSci- 5,420

I'm mostly happy with our performance. My biggest problem is that we were inconsistent in the stuff we have already done (music, econ, sosci, art). Considering how much we had worked on music and econ in particular it was a bit disappointing how inconsistent we were in those subjects. We will have completed everything by the time the next meet occurs, so we will get a better picture of our team then.

I heard the highest Econ score was an 880. If that's the case then this is likely the hardest USAD Econ test since 2011... Are the tests actually going to be harder again this year?

If so, I hope the difficulty of the test stems from quality, not lazy, test writing.

That just seems weird for the Easy tests. Seems like more a fluke than anything, because if you extrapolate that to an anticipated R4/USAD Hard test, those scores would be ridiculously low. We'll see once some R1/USAD Medium/USAD Hard scores come in, I suppose!
