the email address listed in the first post was incorrect. I don't know how I didn't notice this sooner. sorry! the correct email for our club is columbiaquizbowl [at] gmail.com (I think the other one is Cornell's...). If you emailed us already please forward it to this one.

Johns Hopkins won the tournament today in a one-game final against Cornell. Here are the final stats.

Thank you very much to our wonderful staffers Caroline, Geoffrey, Gareth, John John, Raymond, and Kevin for their time, to William Groger for keeping things running smoothly while handling stats and day-of-logistics, to Ryan Rosenberg and Jacob Egol of the editors for being present all day and filling in to staff when needed, to the entire ARCADIA writing and editing team for producing an excellent set, and to all the teams that played the tournament.
