MSO New Region Definitions

We are excited to announce that starting this season, MSO will begin defining new Regions for competing teams in Maryland.

Starting with the 2019-20 season, we will execute the assignment of “Eastern” and “Western” Regions to high schools (Div. C) formerly a part of the “Central” MD and have each region compete in their own Regional. In 2020-21, we will do the same with middle schools (Div. B).**

Regions are a standard part of Science Olympiad in many parts of the country and actually aren’t new to Maryland as Baltimore City middle schools have competed in their own Regional for years as part of our Urban School Initiative. Up until this point, most teams in Maryland would compete in the same and usually large Regional, so any team that advanced to States would just be competing against a subset of the same group of schools. The introduction of true Regions will provide a true tournament progression as the State Tournament won’t just be a pared down version of the Regional. They will allow for smaller tournaments, providing a better experience for all teams, coaches, and volunteers. In addition, they will allow for us to utilize more host sites closer to more schools instead of being restricted to enormous locations with large tournament footprints.
