If I might make a recommendation, expand your outreach for this by directly mailing to school administrations.

Congratulations to Challenger Sunnyvale and Challenger Ardenwood A for getting first and second place! Challenger Sunnyvale narrowly defeated Challenger Ardenwood 250-210 in a close final. We would also like to congratulate Karthik Bharathala of Hopkins for being the top scorer with 68.12 points. Full stats can be found here: http://hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/89 ... l_matches/

We would like to also especially thank Mrs. Schwartz and Stratford San Jose for being a terrific host, and thank Jeff Hoppes for moderating and assisting us with directing our first tournament.

Thank you to Larissa Kelly, Matt Bruce, Julia Bruce, Krishna Bharathala, Ankit Aggarwal, Gavin Pereira, Dorian Chan, and Alejandro Buendia for helping out with moderating and scorekeeping!

Also thank you to Stanford, UC Berkeley, Escobar, and Stratford for lending us their buzzer sets!
