Unless I'm mistaken, two teams from this tournament qualify for HSNCT. What does the second-place tie mean in terms of who qualifies?

Lisgar's coach investigated Merivale's enrollment figures. Merivale is now a small school (unfortunately in some ways) and can probably satisfactorily resolve the tie by being "third" and taking an SSNCT qualification; SSNCT site is far more practical for Canadian teams than HSNCT this year anyway.

We'll double-check Merivale's enrollment and issue invitations accordingly.
