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.
Change made on
Murphy (Tomball Memorial HS) from Timed
move up Harekas Bindra (Clements HS).
Changes made on
Darroh (Travis HS) from Sight Reading 4,
move up Caitriona (Caitie) Devlin (Tompkins HS).
Darroh (Travis HS) from Timed Writing 4,
move up Rozelle Tulalian (Jordan HS).
