Hi sir,
My name is Johnny Nguyen. I had registered 1 team for you but I do not see my team on there. Does that mean I missed the cutoff for being 1 of the 8 teams? I know I signed up kind of late.

After last night, St. Mark's finished 8-2 and WUSTL A and Texas C finished 7-3. All of the teams involved agreed to play it off today, which we just finished up.

WUSTL defeated Texas C 345-175 to set up a disadvantage in the final against St. Mark's. In a game that came down to the final bonus to decide, St. Mark's defeated WUSTL 260-240 to win the IKEA Lower Midwest, Texas and Rockies mirror.

Many thanks to everyone who played yesterday, you all made this a fun (if very long!) day of quizbowl. Also want to make sure I thank Will Alston for being around to resolve any protests, and my moderators: Kyle Hill, Alex Li and Liberty Erickson. Thanks for all of your help yesterday!

Stats will hopefully be up by tonight, or at the latest Monday.
