I attempted to post stats, but for some reason, the files are not uploading to hsquizbowl. I've emailed someone asking about it, so hopefully I get a response by tonight. When the stats issue is resolved, I will post here to let everyone know.

Stats have been uploaded, though the rankings in finals is slightly off (2nd and 3rd in some brackets are flipped, like in bracket 1). The actual rankings are in the post above.
