Disappointing Results

I took E to the State 4-H Horse Judging contest Saturday.  My sister Linda went with us.  There was a Quarter Horse Show and a cross country jumping competition going on at the center too.  
 This is the contest where the top 10 individuals get to be on the state team.  E was on the state team 2 years ago and V was on it last year.  E still has another year of eligibility for the team and we (I) were hoping she would make it this year.
 There were 4 halter classes, 4 performance and 3 sets of reasons.
 E places 2nd in halter and 5th in reasons.  According to how she placed the classes she only dropped 20 points in performance but didn't place in the top 10 in that category.  We were then shocked she didn't place in the top 10 overall.
I've been waiting for the official results to come out and it turns out that she go zeros on 2 classes.  Instead of individual cards  that are turned in at the end of each class they now have a scantron sheet they fill out for all of the classes then just turn in the one sheet at the end of the contest.  Apparently, E (aka - Miss. "I know how to fill out a scantron.") marked two classes on one line and left the other class blank.  She would have been 2nd in performance and 3rd overall.  Tough lesson learned.  Now we will have to try again next year.
