Both of Ithaca's teams had a great time at this tournament - it was well-worth the long journey down. I'd like to personally thank the staffers for being really friendly and helpful, and for getting stats up so quickly.

I noticed in the stats that in our game against North Babylon, it says that we heard 80 tossups - I didn't notice any egregious errors, though I haven't looked at them in much detail. Thanks again for a pleasant tournament experience!

It still says so in the individual stats. Interesting.

Heh, this actually makes perfect sense to me (i.e., I get why it happened). But it's boring. Anyway, fixed now.

Henderson would like to thank everyone at Kings Park High School for hosting a wonderful tournament. We really enjoyed ourselves and it was well-worth the long drive. Many thanks for being so accommodating to our needs, and we want to come back next year.
