So next year’s 2011 county tournament is set for Saturday, Jan. 29th. The match details and conditions are pretty much the same as they’ve been the last few years, save for the exception that this year (as agreed upon at our annual captains meeting at the beginning of the season), instead of just 8th graders being allowed to play for their expected high school, all three grades from 6th – 8th grade may play for their expected high school. As many of us know, this is a wonderful event to participate in, as there are both individual trophies and medals, as well as team trophies. Captains and teacher advisors, make sure to promote and spread the word at your school (even with flyers and/or morning announcements if possible) to help make this a big event. Remember, individual losses do not effect your overall team score, only wins; therefore we really encourage to get anyone who has a desire to play to please sign up.
