I am pleased to announce that we have gotten Platinum certification from PACE which means that the top 25% of our field will earn bids to PACE-NSC in Chicago, IL this year.

We used the Neg5 system for stats this weekend. It is a little buggy, but has great potential. Unfortunately the tournament database will not accept the html files produced by Neg5, so I have them linked below. I will type the info into SQBS later for the tournament database.

Honaker dropped due to local weather concerns Friday evening and Morristown West never showed up. I got their faxed entry and e-mailed to confirm with the coach. I never got any additional contact info from the coach and am fearful that all of my e-mails to their coach may have gone to spam and that they were not aware that they were in the tournament field. We had to scramble to readjust schedules Saturday morning. I am thankful for everyone's patience with that process. We ended up with 18 teams, so we removed an originally planned house team. We played 3 groups of 6 for AM play and rebracketed to 3 groups of 6 for playoffs. The 1 match with a common opponent from prelims carried forward to playoffs.

At the end of playoff rounds, Both Cave Spring A and Cave Spring B had 4-1 records while newcomer Central Wise A and Cave Spring C were tied with 3-2 records.

Cave Spring A had won the first match with Cave Spring B but had dropped one to Central Wise A earlier in the day. Cave Spring B, riding a commanding first half lead, held off a furious comeback attempt by Cave Spring A to win 1st place.

Cave Spring C handled Central Wise A in the 3rd place game to complete the sweep for Cave Spring.

FInal Standings are as follows
(Top 5 are PACE-NSC qualifiers)
1. Cave Spring B
2. Cave Spring A
3. Cave Spring C
4. Central Wise A
5. Sherando
6. Galax
7. Christiansburg A
8. Hidden Valley A
9. Tazewell A
10. Rappahannock County A
11. Hidden Valley B
12. Christiansburg B
13. Narrows A
14. Central Wise B
15. George Washington
16. Tazewell B
17. Rappahannock County B
18. Narrows B
