Important: the physical location of this tournament has changed! The 2017 Northern California SCT will now take place at Stanford, not at Berkeley as previously announced. I will be notifying the registered teams of the change.

Division I standings:

Berkeley A 10-2
Stanford A 10-2
Berkeley B 4-8

Stanford A and Berkeley A are playing a one-game final right now.

Division II is just finishing round 11. Berkeley D has clinched a place in some sort of final; opponent and format depend on the round 11 results.

Berkeley D defeated Stanford B 635-180 in the first game of advantaged final to claim the Division II title.

Division II stats are here.

My thanks to all of the staff who made this tournament possible, especially Nicholas Karas, Niki Peters, Ankit Aggarwal, and Matt Bruce. Special thanks to Jennie Yang of Stanford for getting us rooms on short notice after we were unable to secure room reservations at Berkeley.
