Quick results:

Emmaus beat Manheim Township A with a 380-250ish score to win the tournament.

The 3rd place match saw the 1-person Lehigh Valley Charter team defeat West Chester East A.

I think the 3-2 playoff teams (and thus 5th place) were PALCS B and Unionville A, but that could be incorrect.

The full stat report will follow. Ben Herman and I had the first nine rounds put into SQBS, but had to fill in for some staff in the final round. Once Ben finishes that, he will post the report.

I could give the prelims report, but apparently I can't upload a stat report for a tournament I don't own in the database. (Or at least, I can't figure out how to do so.)

Did "Lehigh Valley" really have a round with 11 negs?

That's supposed to be one neg, not eleven.

Thanks for the clarification. The coach and students at Henderson did a great job hosting the tournament; a slip of the finger is certainly understandable. (I made a much more serious error while reading a bonus question yesterday.) Still, would it be possible to correct these stats, especially if Alex's numbers are going to be so closely scrutinized? Thanks again.

I can't edit the entry in the tournament database as we put it under coach Sobieck's name, and he sent me a few wrong passwords locking me out. The offical stats I submitted to NAQT were corrected and the stats on their page properly reflect that match. I will get to edit the tournament database as soon as I can.

Without the 10 phantom negs, Alex remained the top scorer of the tournament after all rounds, not just the prelim.

EDIT: Now fixed.

I just reassigned ownership of the entry to you.
