Re: Illinois '07-'08

I feel bad for Franklin, but it is CLEARLY stated in all of the documents about roster limits and that names should be listed on the roster.

It's too bad that Franklin lost on a technicality, but a rule is a rule...

Re: Illinois '07-'08

Very proud of our team. We played well against PORTA in what was essentially the championship match.

Nickelback and NASCAR...Sounds like BarringtonJP had the same questions we did...Are all r...

Re: Illinois '07-'08

* Some schools are much more prepared for a meet than others. I find those that are more prepared with scorekeepers, moderators, timers, etc. usually have better teams. Not always, but more often than not. * Barrington: How many matches do you play on the season? * Our area has a scheduling meeting ...

Questions for Dual and Tri Meets

Roster Cuts

What is an acceptable roster size for a jr. high scholastic bowl team? Last year's coach had 18 try out for 7th grade and kept 10. I believe 8th grade also had about the same number of players try out and 10 were kept.

Just named Jr. High Scholastic Bowl Coach!

I was just named Jr. High Scholastic Bowl coach at our Board Meeting this week. I played in high school (16 years ago), but have not been around it since then.

Any tips that one can share with me would be appreciated. I'm excited about getting started,but am really going in pretty clueless.
