The field for SWAG I is now full, although we are planning to expand the field to thirty (30) teams. Teams on the waitlist shall be prioritized alphabetically; that is, any A-teams will be taken before any B-teams, and so on.

Recap and thoughts.

Torrey Pines A won the final against North Hollywood A 435-200 to finish 1st. Arcadia A was knocked out in the semifinal against NoHo A and placed 3rd.
29-team field.
Stats.

Order of finish:
1. Torrey Pines A (20.61 PPB, 8-1 before championships)
2. North Hollywood A (22.08 PPB, 9-1 before championships)
3. Arcadia A (24.28 PPB, 10-0 before championships)
4. Arcadia C (20.09 PPB, 8-2 before championships)
t-5th. Arcadia B (20.00 PPB, 6-3 combined)
t-5th. Rancho Bernardo A (17.77 PPB, 7-3 combined)

For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure Arcadia A didn't score a record-shattering 33.89 ppb against Rancho Bernardo A. According to our own records, we scored 300 bpts and 11 tossups that round, so it should be 27.27. Other than that, there doesn't seem to be much wrong with the stats that I know of other than the missing semifinals and finals.

A huge thanks to Westview for smoothly running the largest regular-difficulty Southern California tournament in the last two years!

Edit: Changed PPB to reflect the now-correct stats
