During qualifications matches the Junior/Senior team ended in 2nd place, Freshman in 5th and Sophomores in 8th.  During the tournament play all three teams made it to the semi-finals. The Freshman, who were allied with the sophomores, were able to come out victorious and made it to the finals. They were unable to come away with a win in the finals, but put up a good fight. Awesome job to all three teams! (1/25-1/27)
