My kids fought their way to the final round by winning two earlier matches before lunch. At the end of the day, we faced the team we expected. Our foe was the same team that had beaten everyone else in our division during the regular season ... everyone except us that is.
We were the only team to beat them in regular play and now here we were facing each other again.
It was one of those nip and tuck, gut wrenching games and the lead bounced back and forth between two very good teams.
In the end, they beat us by only a few questions worth of points and we knew we had played well, so the second place trophy didn't seem so bad.
In fact we were pretty pumped!
The smaller trophy was for having the best season record.
Next Tuesday is the final conference tournament where we truly do go up against Goliath schools from across the state.
In the meantime, I'm mighty proud of my nerds.
