Interesting... we were hoping that since you guys at JI came up to GMU for Weekend of Quizbowl, and we were really trying to let people know this was a dress rehearsal for NSC that she might be more inclined to go. Instead she went to Chip's on the same weekend, right?

Correct. In fact, Mr. Barry, Mr. Rountree, and Mr. Huff came to watch one of our games against...I think Wallenpaupack B. Perhaps it was our not-so-hot performance on Saturday of WoQ that may have swayed her to the other side, but I don't think I've ever heard her say the word PACE. Perhaps "pace", like "pick up the pace", but never PACE nor NSC.

Ahh! Thanks Sarah. On my own, I might have come up with a less flattering word.

I think a team that went 1-5 and could not once break 150 points on an NAQT A Set at Seton Hall is not "strong" by any quizbowl-related definition of that term.
For what it's worth, I played them at that tournament and I do believe they were missing their captain/guy who does all of their scoring. At the New York state championship I think they beat Hunter so there obviously is some talent.
