Thank you for hosting a fun and speedy tournament! My only complaint I have is that the afternoon playoff rounds' questions were miles harder than those in the morning. Otherwise, everything was smooth and well-run.

Thanks for the kind words--apparently, yes, the playoff rounds were a bit harder than we anticipated.

Congrats to East Chapel Hill for winning and Raleigh Charter for being runner-up.

Full stats are forthcoming.

The questions were excellent. As usual, the SMS qb staff does a fantastic of putting together a house-written set and running an efficient tournament.

Thanks for running an outstanding tournament. Loved the format, the questions, and getting home on time! That Missouri worksheet was legitimately impossible, though.
