So, pretty close huh? In the end, Reitz remained victorious, 116 - 103. But Signature did get a commanding second place over perennial runner-up Mater Dei.

A big reason for the closeness of the matchup was the new talent. Phuc whipped out his OO for the first time locally, Sarah did an OI for the first time ever, Katherine did an OI for the first time for this year and is likely to advance to state, Tara managed to keep Adam in check, Kensington double-finaled in HI and Prose, Emily Nejad WON DI (amazing for a novice), and she and Cari held down memorized duo, Elliot/Ben did awesome for just one week of heavy prep, and Rob/Amanda did well for their limited prep too.

If next year we can get some more new talent in, and we force Rachel to compete at sectionals, we have a real shot at taking Sectionals.
