Linguishtik Challenge Match

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 Ling Challenge Match, and the battles for first and third were very close, with a large gap separating the top two teams from the bottom two teams.
The averages were as follows:
No Names 4.67
Next Prime Suspects 4.54
The Smurfs 3.67
Get Smart 3.57

Each member of the No Names who was present received a six added to their Friday tournament score. Members of the Next Prime Suspects all got 5 points, The Smurfs 3 points, and Get Smart 2 points each.
