Hello,
Wilmington Charter originally signed up as we had anticipated a date change for this event and since JHU has decided to stick with the original date (which is also the date of our middle school tournament), we regretfully have to go through with the decision to drop our team from the event.

My thanks to the JHU team for running this tournament! The rounds went smoothly and were well-organized. I would definitely consider attending future tournaments at JHU.
