Re: MO State Championships

3A Savannah over Westminster Christian Academy (damn damn damn, not that I'm a touch biased here) 245-200. 3rd place: El Dorado Springs over South Callaway 90 to 75. South Callaway- that'd be my school. We were quite excited to get 4th place, but we were embarrased at the bad questions. I do have t...

Our school organized a round-robin tournament for MSs in our county, but such tournaments are sporadic and aren't sta...
