Congratulations for OSU (Chris Ray, Enoch Fu, Clark Smith, and Aakash Singh) for winning this tournament by defeating Chicago B (James Lasker, Tamara Vardomskaya, and Matthew Lehmann) in a one-game final.

Thanks to all of our staffers for their amazing help today: Athena Kern, Samir Khan, Andy Huff, Dylan Minarik, Tejas Raje, Alex Damisch, Sam Winikow, Ryan Rosenberg, and Nikhil Manglik. Special thanks to Samir for the invaluable extra help he provided to me both before and during the tournament.

I hope all teams had fun, and please contact me if you have any questions. Stats will hopefully be up tomorrow.

Thanks to anyone who helped run this tournament! Everything basically went according to plan. I would've liked to get out earlier, but hey this is quizbowl I shouldn't have expected that. So thanks for the experience!

A third shout-out to Jason and Samir––this tournament went a bit long, and some of the seeding was a little unwise. However, when we had a "circle of death" situation in the B bracket, Jason took input from the teams involved without being a doormat, and he and Samir re-did the playoffs schedule relatively quickly and calmly (they apparently had announced before the tournament how they were going to break ties, which is also commendable). Well done, all. :party:
