Thanks to the 18 teams who attended, and thanks as well to everyone who assisted with reading and scorekeeping throughout the day. Special thanks to Denise Kreb, who coordinated the hosting arrangements at Loyola, and to Brad Fischer, who directed the tournament! We hope that all teams and students who attended will be able to join us at our upcoming A Set and C Set tournaments in the area. We also look forward to welcoming all students and teams who qualified for our 2020 National Championships to Arlington, VA and Washington, DC on April 23-26, 2020. Also, all students who finished in the top 25% of the Bee in their division (in either prelims or after playoffs) or who were on a winning Bowl team qualify for the 2020 International History Olympiad! Thanks again for coming and for your continued support of our tournaments!
