The more interesting story was that a significant number of teams from outside of California attended BMUN this year. Some notable non-Californian teams mentioned it was not as competitive as they thought it would be, while others said they now understand how difficult it is competing with multiple class programs in the same room. The verdict is inconclusive, and that just means the West Coast versus East Coast rivalry will continue. Instead, the bigger trend is that now many of the powerhouse teams have essentially formed an informal cartel to decide which conference they will all go to.
Sometimes, they picked a conference that welcomed the competition and had been trying hard to recruit the top teams to attend, and those conferences were able to foster an extremely challenging environment for the delegates that wanted to test their skills against the best. Regardless, cartels look like they are here to stay, and that will have both positive and negative impacts to the circuit in the coming years.
Horace Mann then followed-up with a pair of Best Large Delegation awards at two of the most competitive conferences of the year, U. Mira Costa had a big target on their back this year but was able to prove that they are one of the best teams in the nation. Chicago Lab is also one of the best teams in the nation. Stevens — helped them maintain their top 5 ranking. These results added up to a high score, particularly since Chicago Lab faced at least three other top teams at every conference it participated in this year. Port Charlotte dominated in the Fall, winning the George P. Port Charlotte once again showed that it is one of the best teams in the nation with a strong performance at Harvard HMUN with a fourth place overall finish in terms of weighted points — this was only one weighted point behind third place Oceanside and virtually a tie since Port Charlotte had more individual awards.
The strength of that performance also helped keep them in the top 5. It was able to fielded a larger team closer to home at U. Afterward, the team traveled down to Georgetown NAIMUN where it took home the Best Small Delegation in a very competitive and close race — they ultimately tied with Dalton for third place overall and was one weighted point above Outstanding Small Delegation winner Canterbury.
Although Dalton did not go undefeated this year, any talk about their potential demise would be greatly exaggerated because the team had an excellent year by any standard. All these results were good enough to keep Dalton near the top. But perhaps the spark in the team this year was getting away from rival and de facto travel partner West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South for once in the schedule and carving their own path. WWP North will return a solid group of delegates and should be in position to try to catch their WWP South rival and contend for top 5 status.
Huntington Beach is difficult to beat when they are at full-strength. Cerritos was on an upward trajectory the entire season and peaked at the right time in impressive fashion.

The upside? Undefeated J. For a team that could only attend three conferences our ranking uses four scores because their funding was about to get cut at the beginning of the school year, being able to place into the top 10 is already a very impressive feat and a proud comeback for this public school. Better yet, it seems like most of their peers recognize them as an elite team now. Stevens is graduating a strong group of seniors but will return a solid group of juniors plus upcoming talent developed from its JPSMUN novice conference, and the team will look to upgrade its conference schedule next year.
