  1. So what are the results out of State Quals districts?
  2. What, a CO tourney thread?!?!? I thought you kids had all taken up PF... Results: 1. GW Tran/Kernan 2. Creek Henthorn/Moore 3. FoCo Ingraham/Bolshevik 4. Creek Herbst/Schuze 5. Creek Clark/Ribovich 6. Somewhere Someone/Somebody Finals: Creek HM (Neg) d. FC IB (Nelsen, Camous, Moosajee*) GW TK d. Creek HS Twas good to see all the oldies and newbies. I wish I weren't leaving early, so I could judge Golden/Mullen.
  3. I feel stalked. But indeed, we did lose on a 2-1 to go down and out. Congrats to CheyEast and Sam & Miles. I'm not surprised we saw so many mountain region teams break; I'm actually surprised we didn't see more break (East ZW, Creek Pandy). Mad props to Patrick and Andy for debating--LIKE A BOSS--in the most absurd draw ever--4 of the prelims teams they hit broke, and they also hit GBN, who didn't break. Also, huge congrats to Dani Camous from St. Mary's for getting the NFL Student of the Year Award after the interview process. Basically, the NFL considers the 2500 students at Nationals and gives the award to the nicest person. Needless to say, they chose correctly. And finally, no one can congratulate Stephen enough on taking 4th in the nation. He was the last undefeated remaining, and he was one squirrely judge from beating the eventual national champion in the round before semis.
  4. Congrats Taylor, Jacob! Real glad you guys ended up competing after changing your minds a dozen times. And congrats to Sam and Miles! I can't believe it was only last year I watched you guys compete during novice season.

  9. 6 qualifers! How many teams competed? And congrats to all the qualifiers! That means between the metro area and the Western Slope, we have 16 confirmed qualifiers for state. Does anyone know what happened up north in the FoCo & Greeley area?
  10. Qualifiers: Region II: Creek GO (4-0) Creek HR (4-0) Creek LT (3-1) Kent KM (3-1) Region III: Eaglecrest (?) Thanks to everyone who came out and judged! Even though we didn't have flow judges every round, it was a huge relief that none of our judges came in and asked what the speech times were.

    No one ever bothered to do a Chap thread, so I'll post this here: I heard finals is Kent Miller/Rassenfoss vs. Littleton Jacob/Merrick. Congrats all! How was DPS? Was there an epic Zax/Want v Li/Takeda showdown?
  12. esquiar


    We'll be sending 3: Li/Takeda Gyro/Potato Hilger/Rackley

    If by "and some more," you mean "no one else," that would be correct.
