Blair signed two teams up for this so I think the initial post has just not been updated with the field (although I don't know who else has signed up)

The field should now be current. Since the OP of this thread only has 3 posts, every edit needs moderator approval.

If it's not showing because it takes a bit for newer posters I don't mean to be rush, but does this mean the field cap is 17 teams?

To ensure a quicker response, I just want to let everyone know that we hope to accommodate all of the teams that have registered today, with a field cap of hopefully 24 teams depending on the number of staffers we can confirm. If any of the teams that are coming or intend to come could bring (additional) staffers, it would become much easier for us to expand the field. Please let Rohan and I know if you are willing to do so!

This tournament was won by Johns Hopkins A after defeating Maryland A in a disadvantaged final. Thank you to all of the teams who have come to our tournament! We apologize for the delays and miscommunications, but hope we were able to provide a smooth and enjoyable experience. Prelim and playoff stats are already posted and I will work on getting combined stats in by the end of the day.
