Daily Log of Changes to State-Qualifier List


After Houstonfest, some schools and individuals opt not to attend State for various reasons.  When this happens, the name of each entry that will not attend State is dropped from the state-qualifier list, and the next entry (from places 6-10) moves up.  These changes are reflected in the results spreadsheet, but for the convenience of teachers who are watching for changes that affect their students, this page will also contain a log of the changes made each day.
