Re: High School Player Poll

Shoutouts also to Tora Husar and Olivia Lamberti who both inspire me lots. (And I'll quickly add that I know Hunter didn't finish that highly at NSC but I was 51% of scorin...

Hunter will be running our usual two tournaments, SCOP Novice in the fall and Prison Bowl X (housewrite) in the spring. The dates have not gone through the final approval process but SCOP will very probably be October 15 and Prison Bowl will very probably be March 25.
