Re: Loyburn @ Loyola Academy (Wilmette, IL) 12/15/12

Interesting to see Stevenson beating Auburn by a comfortable margin. Has that been predicted?
Also, I never realized Greg from Fenton was that good. Good for him.
Anyone want to PM me the identity of the Palatine School for Norse Children? I don't recognize the names, unlike the other two psuedonyms.

Wheaton North would get in at 150 over Wheaton Warrenville South, when neither team attended either national tournament and South was ranked 119 to North's 140 in the last ranking before Nationals?
