Congratulations to Katy Taylor, winners of the ICT-D2 portion of Texas Invitational IX on Sunday. Taylor won the first game of an advantaged final over Plano West, going 10-1 on the day, winning 10 straight after a first-prelim loss.

Runner-up Plano West went 9-3, while third-place DCC and fourth-place LASA went 8-4. The day featured six preliminaries and a double-elimination bracket.

By finishing third Saturday and first Sunday, Taylor won the overall Texas Invitational title.
