Western Suburban Science League

2007-2008: Schedule | Meets | Points | Rank | Final Rank 06-07

Past Years: WSSL 2006-2007 | WSSL 2005-2006

For most the year, the WHS Science Team competes in the Western Suburban Science League, aka WSSL. There are 15 schools in the League, and from October-February, most of (if not all of) the schools travel to one high school to compete in 3 to 4 events. Each event has at most 4 people on a team, and there are also B-teams for some of the events. A B-team is a team which participates in the event, but its score is not counted in the team's overall score. At at the end of each event teams are ranked from first to last, and the team who gets first place gets 20 points, down to the team that gets last place gets at most 3 points. I don't think anyone can get 1 or 2 points. Also, a team receives 0 points for not attending, participating or (I believe) disqualification.

Here is a quick scoring chart.

At the end of the meet, the points from each event are added, and teams are ranked overall. The team with the most points wins the meet. (There is no trophy for winning the meet, although the idea of a traveling trophy for this purpose has been brought up) At the end of the year, the team with the most points wins. They get a big, shiny trophy. Wellesley has never gotten a big, shiny trophy. Also, the 2nd, and 3rd teams get smaller trophies. We've never gotten one of those either.

THIS YEAR WE HAVE 18 TEAMS! New record. Keep it in mind when looking at scores.
