Clague Practices During State Tournament Season

As you're reading this blog, you probably know the State Tournaments are almost here.  Clague sixth graders (the "elementary" teams) will be competing in Grand Rapids March 2-4 and the seventh and eighth graders (the "middle" teams) will be competing in the same place March 9-11.  This is a great time of year for Academic Games but means that our practice schedule is of course changed: 
  • The remaining February practices (Friday the 26th and Monday the 29th) proceed at their normal times. 
  • Due to the state tournaments, there will be no practices Friday March 4 or Friday March 11.  
  • Monday March 7 is a practice for the middle teams only -- 6th graders do not have practice that night.
  • The whole team will be back together and back to our usual schedule starting on Monday, March 14.  
We will be posting results as they happen (well, not too long after they happen) from the state tournament on our twitter account @clagueag .   Depending on your browser, you might see that twitter feed to the right of this blog post.

Last Saturday Tournament of 2015/16 Held In Northville

19 Clague students participated in the final Saturday tournament of the 2015/16 year.  The tournament was held at Amerman Elementary in Northville.

Clague's 93 was good for the best Top Five score.  Congratulations both to that impressive new team from Fenton who took the Team Average title, and hosts Amerman who won Total Points and Most Competitors.  

Top Clague scores (18 or higher) included Jasmine X., Zach N., Aarnav U., Jerry L., and John C.

Clague was missing a number of our multi-talented players participating in the Solo & Ensemble festival in Ann Arbor that day, so the Cube Ripken award for participating in all six tournaments this year is not only unreal, but also unclaimed.  Clague did have 18 students attend five of the six tournaments this year, so congratulations to those winners of the Five-Sided Cube Award.

Those 18 players are part of the 66 Clague players who attended at least three tournaments this year and have prepared for the State Super Tournaments in Grand Rapids coming up in early March.
