The Ottawa Hills Green Bear Team of Steven Randall, Will Koury, Daniel Liu, Urvish Patel, Santiago Garcia-Mata, and Sam Assi got the season started with an impressive performance in the competitive Michigan State University Kickoff tournament. The Green Bears finished among only three teams with a perfect 5-0 record in the preliminary rounds. After going 2-3 in the playoffs, the Green Bears found themselves in a sudden-death playoff for third place. They lost a close match, nearly avenging an earlier loss, but it was an excellent performance to start the season nonetheless.
Juniors Steven Randall (44 tossups answered with 12 for power) and Will Koury (29 tossups with 14 for power) were among the top individual performers in the tournament. Full results can be found here. Congratulations to Coach Torio and the team. Special thanks to Mr. Nusbaum for chaperoning the trip to East Lansing.
We wish the team all the best this season.
