    Speaking of Dowling, congratulations to team Valley for an impressive weekend: Championships in novice policy (Brody Diehn and Travis Smith), JV policy (Thomas Leafstedt and Catherine Leafstedt) and the PF Round Robin (Sam Schulte and Will Crichton). Also four of eight quarterfinalists in novice LD (Alissa Smith, Sunita Kolareth, semifinalist Gina Scorpiniti and runner-up Satya Yaramati).

    And while I’m at it congratulations to Anthony DeFino from Ankeny for another novice championship! Way to represent DM Metro Area LD Dominance. 

  • Totally unpredictable results. Imagine Fried and Tupler winning this tournament given the field. It would have been a tragedy if they had done something like hit in semis :).

    good job guys, nothing we weren’t expecting.

  • congrats to lake highland for a solid performance

  • congrats on a dominant weekend fried and toopler!

  • Michael Fried def. Grant Laverty in semis.
    Kathy v. Toopler is still going on.

  • thanks for helping with results, matt and eli. do you have the pairings for semis?

    congratulations on reaching the bid round, maisie! it’s remarkable that you’ve managed to reach two bid rounds considering missouri’s draconian travel restrictions.
