Tournament results

Today was the double elimination tournament.

Not being a sports fan, I really have no understanding of how DE tournies work. The round robin quizzes have an impact on how the teams start out in the DE, but everyone actually starts the day with a clean slate.

It was still a pretty grueling day for our team. They ended up taking 2nd place in their division and it was an intense and exciting thing to watch.

Aunt Penny drove down and watched them all day. Having never seen quizzing in action before, she was quite surprised at the intensity of it. It was a good show for her-they had her on the edge of her seat many times.

We are very proud of our girls and their teammates. Not only for the performance they put in, but also for the sportsmanship they displayed. They are not unique here-there are a few hundred really great kids roaming around this campus this week. It's been a great experience.

Tomorrow is the awards banquet and then we head home. I'll try to catch up with everyone within the next few days.
