Thanks, Cortney, for your kind words and for setting up this tournament. Thanks are also due to Josh Queen for stepping in last-minute to act as director, and to Alex Connor for hosting us at St. Charles. It was a lot of fun to share the venue with the high school tournament, say hello to the folks from around the state, and of course play in such a cool setting.
The final game between Hyatts and Miami Valley was an absolute classic. My hat is off to the scary-balanced squad of Arvind, Ian, RJ, Spencer, and Nitish, as well as Coach Bird, who have put in a ton of work over the course of the season.
It's remarkable how much the Ohio middle school circuit has developed over the last two years...Edgewood, Hyatts, and Heritage all have excellent teams, as do Burneson (Westlake) and Copley-Fairlawn, who almost certainly would have been fighting for the title had the weather not been so foul. I look forward to seeing Copley play at MSNCT, along with Hyatts A & B, the University School, and Lake Center Christian. Good luck to everyone making the trip to Atlanta in May!
