A very exciting day at Kingswood on Saturday for our first ever At-Large tournament! First off, thanks to John Struble and his crew for putting on a great St. Paddy’s day spread. It’s always great to visit John, and for some of us, it worked out well, because we were able to “be in two places at once”, running back and forth between the main building and the theatre building for the drama festival.
Now, on to the important stuff. 10 Varsity teams competed during the day, and 14 j/v teams.
Here’s how that went down:
So, Merrimack, Salem and Plymouth all tied at the top. Salem already qualified at their region, so that left Plymouth and Merrimack. As Merrimack had beaten Plymouth during the tournament, they held the tiebreak and took home the final tournament win of the year! Merrimack had an excellent day, as their j/v team ran the table and took home the bag of candy from Murph.
So, how about overall:
The tournament field is set, as Hanover, Fall Mtn, BG, Salem and Merrimack are joined by Plymouth, Kingswood and PCA as at large qualifiers. The state tournament should be a real dogfight!
The j/v points finished TIED. After 5 tournaments, Plymouth and Fall Mtn. were tied overall, and a tiebreak game was held, in which Plymouth J/V prevailed. They will get their trophy at the state tournament (since I left it on my desk at Salem, oops, sorry).
So, that’s it! Another regular season in the books. It’s been a lot of fun! The state tournament will be held at the Legislative Office Building in Concord on April 8th. Please be there by 1:30 PM. Spectators are welcome! And if you would like to read questions (and aren’t associated with a team participating), let Murph know, he can pay you!
Just a reminder that Kingswood will host our final regular season tournament on March 17th! This is the first “At-Large” tournament we have held. This means that the varsity team with the best record who hasn’t yet won a regional will qualify for the state tournament, regardless of geographic region. So who knows! I’m very excited.
We will also crown our winner for best J/V squad of the year, as well, so lots of exciting things going on for us.
Please remember to RSVP to John Struble ( email@example.com ) and let him know if you’re coming and if you can bring a buzzer or two and a reader. Wear green for St. Patrick’s Day!
Look forward to seeing you all there!
Good afternoon all! Hope you’re all enjoying the Olympics.
We all had a great time at PCA today, many thanks to Donna, Ray and her crew for a fabulous day! This was our final “regional” of the year, with our new format “at-large” tournament coming in March as the final regular season event of the year. Should be exciting!
Now, onto the results:
Nine varsity teams competed today (with PCA providing an extra to round out to 10), so we had a shortened 9 round tournament. PCA and Salem were the only two teams competing for the regional crown and the automatic bid to the State Tournament. Here’s how things shook out:
Salem won the region and moves on the state tournament in April.
Here’s how the varsity at-large points look as of today:
In the J/V bracket with had an abundance of teams playing! Only 5 schools, but more than a dozen teams between them. Here’s how that all shook down. I’m only counting actual wins, because there were an odd number of teams, so there was bye floating out there for some teams. And we’re only counting the best j/v score from each school.
Murph promises to have candy for the Fall Mountain folks at the tournament on 3/17.
And here’s where we are with the overall standings for J/V:
And there you go!
Remember our final regular season tournament will be held on March 17th at Kingswood, so let John Struble know if you’re coming. And wear your green! Thanks to everyone, and hope to see you there!

Hopefully everyone got home safely from today’s Division III regional at Merrimack. We want to thank Sara Campbell and her crew for putting on a great tournament, with lots of goodies and snacks! The weather cooperated just enough for us to get things going today, and eleven schools were able to join us. One team, Moultonborough Academy joined us for the first time, so we thank them for joining us! Three teams competed for the Division plaque: Merrimack, Bishop Guertin and Pinkerton. BG finished today with an 8-2 record and took home the division crown, so congrats to them! There were five schools that had J/V teams compete today, and the BG team also took home the candy there, with a 9-1 record in the J/V bracket.
Full results are below, including season standings, but let me just remind you that we are on our annual “GSC Hiatus” now until February 10th, when we will gather at PCA for our Division IV regional. Keep an eye out for announcements on that toward the end of January. Good luck to all team who are doing GSC, and see you in 2018!
First of all, a big shout out to Carlene Gadapee and her crew at Lisbon Regional School for hosting a great tournament this weekend! Ten schools provided varsity teams at the tournament, and there were eight teams that competed in the J/V bracket as well. Four schools competed for the Division I regional title: Hanover, Kingswood, Plymouth and Colebrook. Hanover topped the chart with a record of 8-1 for the day. Here are the full results and the current standings for both Varsity and J/V:
We hope to see you all next week for the Division III tournament at Merrimack High School!
For those of you who were at Super Sunday yesterday, I hope you did well!
I hope you all have a great holiday this weekend, but just as a reminder, when we return to school after Thanksgiving, we have our Division I (North Country) regional at Lisbon on December 2, which is a week from this coming Saturday!
Please let Carlene Gadapee know if you will be coming, and if you can bring a buzzer system and readers! (firstname.lastname@example.org).
