Congratulations to Mission San Jose High School for winning the 2004
Cardinal Junior Classic!
Cardinal Junior Classic occurred on Sunday, October 24 on the Stanford
campus. 22 teams from 12 high schools attended, including teams from Seattle, Washington
and El Paso, Texas.
Teams began the day by playing 4 random opponents. Stats and standings
for those rounds can be found
Then, teams were put into brackets a through d (top 6, next 6, next 5,
last 5). Each bracket played a round-robin. Stats and standings
for those rounds can be found
The top 6 teams played in bracket "a". Here are the results for that bracket:
Team C: Mission San Jose (4-1)
Team B: Lakeside (3-2)
Team T; Harker (3-2)
Team K: Half Moon Bay (2-3)
Team S; Bentley (2-3)
Team G: Harker (1-4)
The final standings were determined by record in the bracketed
round-robin, with total points in the round-robin as a tie-breaker. Teams in bracket "a"
took the 6 top spots, followed by teams in bracket "b", etc. At the end of the round-robin, Mission San Jose emerged as the winner, with a 4-1 record.
Congratulations! Lakeside and Harker (Team T) were both 3-2 (with Lakeside winning on points). The fourth-place
team (determined by a difference of 1 point per game on average!) was Half
Moon Bay, who tied with Bentley with a 2-3 round-robin record. The top 4
teams qualified for NAQT's 2005 Nationals.
The top scorers (determined using the 4 random-opponent rounds, since stats from
the later power-matched rounds tend to penalize players on strong teams)
