Washington WIMSEY VII 4/2/2022

Post by dwd50 »

Washington Middle School will be hosting the 7th annual Washington Invitational for Middle School and Elementary Youths (WIMSEY VII) on April 2nd.

This year we will be running four different divisions:
- A “Challenger” Middle School (Grades 7-8) division for teams that are looking to attend Nationals and/or consistently earn over 16 Points per Bonus on a regular NAQT MS set.
- A “Contender” Middle School (Grades 7-8) division for teams that don’t fit the definition for Challenge
- A "Competitor" Elementary (Grades 6 and younger) division

The aim in splitting up the field is to help with scheduling and to keep teams playing competitive matches throughout the day.

All divisions will be run on NAQT's MS-42 set.

All Middle School games will be 20/20 with 15s, but no -5s, and bonuses will not rebound.
Elementary games will be 16/16 with 15s, but no -5s, and bonuses WILL rebound.

Costs are:

- $70 for the first Middle School team for a school, $65 for each additional Middle School team. (B, etc.)
- $60 for the first Elementary team for a school, $55 for each additional Elementary team.
- Fully functional buzzer systems are a $5 discount.
- Providing an experienced moderator (reader) is a $15 discount. Please let us know about these well in advance. We reserve the right to refuse this discount.
- Teams traveling over 100 miles (one way per Google Maps) will receive a $5 discount.

The caps (currently) are:
Challenger Middle - 12
Contender Middle - 18
Competitor Elementary - 18

These can change if we're able to bring in the staff.

In Elementary, CIS Blue went undefeated to take the title. CGE C's win over Hallsville gave them 2nd place.

Both Middle School divisions came down to points scored.

In Contender Division, Smithton B, CIS B, and Fulbright A all finished playoffs at 4-1. Smithton had 1575 points from playoffs games to take the title, and CIS B's 1395 points to Fulbright A's 1165 gave them 2nd.

In Challenger Division, Washington A was poised to clear the field until two losses in the last two rounds left them tied with CIS A at 8-2. Washington's 3750 points gave them the win over CIS' 3475.
