Congrats to Toronto for winning the Canadian mirror of WORKSHOP with a record of 8 and 2. Rounding out the top 3 is UBC A and UBC B, both sporting 6 and 4 records.

As well, congrats to our top scorer from McGill B, Kevin Fan, for being the mirror's top scorer with 62.00 ppg. Kevin Fan also won the neg prize with 20 negs, surpassing perennial neg prize contender Jay Misuk for the accolade.

I want to give a big thanks to the staffers (Jack, Milan, Rico, Marcell, Murad) and my co-TD Emmet for helping the tournament be run as smoothly as possible.
