Hello, all.

Hope the teams enjoyed their sojourn in Quincy this weekend. QUACK VII was won by a familiar champion, Illinois, with Arkansas taking second. A closer look:

We divided into two round robins of eight for the first seven rounds. After that, the top four and bottom four teams in each bracket played each other in four interbracket matches. The top two teams from each round robin then made the single elimination play-offs.

Final RR Standings were:

Latrell

Arkansas 11-0
Illinois A 9-2
Um-Rolla 8-3
Marquette A 6-5
Missouri B 5-6
Washington B 4-7
Iowa B 3-8
Wichita St. A 1-10

PJ

Iowa A 7-4
Washington A 7-4
Missouri A 7-4
UMKC 6-5
Marquette B 6-5
Wichita St. B 4-7
Illinois B 4-7
Seekers 0-11

In the first round of play-offs, we had:

Arkansas 310, Washington 275
Illinois 310, Iowa 230

Then, in the consolation match

Washington 260, Iowa 100

And in the championship

Illinois 285, Arkansas 280

In the championship, Illinois had overcome many negs to pull within 20 on the last question. They then powered the toss-up, and got one part of a soap opera bonus to win by 5.

In the individual shoot-out, the winner was Scott Brinker of Missouri A. Runner-Up was Rodrigo Sanchez of Marquette B. The high scorer during the day was Mike Wehrman of Arkansas, with 110.45 ppg.

The surprise of the tournament was, to me, Marquette. This was their first non-CBI event, and both teams played strong all day. With a little experience, these guys could be dangerous - most of their mistakes seemed due to inexperience (like someone with a 34-33 toss-up/interrupt ratio). As it was, they had two players in the top four in the shoot-out, and when they left were planning some intense-sounding practice schedule.

Anyone, hope everyone enjoyed this as much as we did.
