Re: Ohio '10 - '11

I didn't really word this the best on the Ohio board, and I wasn't there for the tournament but I think that the Solon tournament (with some of Ohio's best teams, sans Solon who I am assuming was staffing the tournament) is a testament of how just how strong and deep Ohio quiz bowl is.
