Congratulations to Fremd A, who went undefeated en route to 1st place. Also congrats to Barrington and Fremd B, who placed 2nd and 3rd respectively.

A huge thanks goes to our wonderful staff: Bard Fischer, Denise Kreb, Mike Laudermith, Basedanna Phillips, Benj Phillips, Mike Sorice, Kraken Anne Strey, Tyler Vaughan, Mike Whitey, and Luke Wigtil. Especially big thanks to Tyler, who stepped in to staff after a last minute cancellation.
