Stats are here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournament ... all_games/

Congratualations to AMSA, who won, clearing the field, and congratulations to Sharon A, who finished in second place. Both teams qualified for PACE NSC.

Thank you everyone for coming, I hope you all enjoyed the tournament. I do apologize for the late lunch; next time we will check to make sure that the pizzeria we order from is actually open. If anyone has any comments/criticisms on how the tournament was run, please either post here or email me so we can learn for the future, and follow Ben's advice in the post above regarding discussion of the set.

Note about Stats: we played a 7-team round robin, followed by what we intended to be a 4-team playoff division and 3-team consolation division (well, we had intended 8 -> 4/4, until Philips Exeter dropped). We ended up having just the playoff division, as two teams (Williston Northampton and Acton-Boxborough) left early, and Lexington forfeited their last round. I think this should clear up any confusion resulting from the fact that different teams played different amounts of games.
