Team Trophy

There were 15 participating colleges. Stanford University successfully defended their national titel of last year! Points awarded are based on the rules in the booklet (see below), and do not reflect team sizes. This year we ran an A and B (consolations) draw, and the rules of last year would have been hard to apply. Although one can clearly see that the top three also had the most points, I can only say a team trophy is won by a team, not by a one or two person school representation: send in more people!
