2007 St. Mark's Heart of Texas Invitational

Recommended Posts

oh no!! both damien teams dropped??

 

Thats silly that greenhill got paired up against eachother again :(

 

It's not silly. It's called not breaking brackets, and it's standard procedure at almost every tournament I've ever been to. It ensures that prelim performances dictate the bracket and no special consideration is given to larger schools that break multiple teams. Wouldn't it be worse if you were say the 2 seed, and were supposed to hit the 15 seed, only to find that the 15 seed was now someone else who had actually cleared higher in order to protect that squad's ability to have mutliple teams in later outrounds?

 

That said, props to everyone for breaking and a good tournament. Personal shout out to Basil and Mahjeed for rocking, and Portage Northern for the bid. Nice job!

I don't believe so, as he dropped to Westminster in doubles.

 

 

Also, is there an inaccuracy on the quarters brackets sheet on JOT? They say St. Stephens beat Head Royce, but I was under the impression Head Royce won that round and debated Kincaid in octos.

Westminster SA vs. Pace AL.

 

"Infamous"? Heh, probably two of the nicest people you'll meet...

I only say infamous because they were widely known for being a good young team.

wouldn't that mean they DESERVE their recognition and be considered a "famous" sophomore team last year?
