Re: South Carolina 2008-2009

So the field for teams at HSNCT from South Carolina looks like this:

Dorman
Eastside
North Myrtle Beach

Any ideas on who might else go from South Carolina, and if James Island will go to HSNCT this year instead of the :chip: 'ers tournament?

Re: Newer player attendance at tournaments

Well I am pretty good on NAQT questions at this point in time but I believe my stats on PACE questions would be more accurate. Plus it's not my fault that my school really can't afford to send our team to any tournaments, and not one person besides myself is willing to pay out of pocket.
