In a challenge match, the students work with their Friday tournament teams for the first half of practice. In second half, all of the students, except the captains, are matched up into games against students from the other teams. The captains are allowed to float around from game to game and help their teammates. At the end of the night, the team with the highest average over all its players wins the match, and every player on that team receives a 6.
Tonight was our On-Sets Challenge Match, and the match was very, very close, with all four teams finishing within a quarter point of average. In other words, if any one of the 22 matches had gone the other way, the order of the teams might have completely flipped around.
The averages were as follows:
Get Smart 4.27
No Names 4.13
Next Prime Suspects 4.05
The Smurfs 4
Each member of Get Smart who was present received a six added to their Friday tournament score. Members of the No Names all got 4 points, Next Prime Suspects and Smurfs got 3 points.
