- As always we dominated in a scholastic event. This tournament was designed more for the next generation of super heroes, than the present. One of the strategies at this tournament was to develop a ‘hit squad’, we picked the 4 people that looked the scariest to walk around the tournament to intimidate our opponents, the 2nd graders!
The Hit Squad
Alan, Viktor, Emma, and Jason
- Jeremy sweep the field in the Open section, with a 4-0 score. Stella (3rd), Josh (5th), Mark (6th) and Vincent (7th) all had 3-1 scores. CCL was the 1st place team.
- In the U-900 division, Soham finished in clear 2nd place with a 4-1 score. Abby, a last round win away from taking clear 1st place finished in 5th place with a 3.5 score. CCL was the 1st place team.
