1997 Terrapin Invitational Tournament Results

On October 31-November 1, the University of Maryland, College Park held the Terrapin Invitational for the eleventh straight year. Thirteen teams from nine schools competed on hardcore ACF questions, in a full round robin. Schools included Chicago, Virginia, Cornell, South Carolina, Penn State, Roanoke, Georgia Tech, Kentucky (Seth Kendall playing by himself), and a Maryland House Team of one sophomore and freshmen.

The University of Virginia A finished first with an undefeated 12-0 record. You Keep Your Chicago Away From Me and Cornell A tied with 10-2 marks, with the Chicago team taking second on the basis of head-to-head. Georgia Tech and South Carolina A were next at 8-4, with Georgia Tech finishing fourth by head-to-head.

Congratulations to Andrew Yaphe and Phil O'Donoghue from Virginia A, with a special congrats to Brian Rostron, who took zeroth all-star honors by filling in for Andrew in Round 12 while he took the GREs, going 13-0.

Congratulations also to Andrew, John Sheahan (YKY Chicago AFM), Eric Tentarelli (Cornell A), and Seth Kendall (Kentucky) for earning all-star awards. The winner of the Biscuit Award for most negs (34) went to our fifth scorer, TC Ford of South Carolina A. He won a dining hall biscuit (of appropriate hardness) and promptly took a bite.

Finally, to conclude the tournament, competitors played on a special theme packet, written by a tandem led by John Nam. Those competitors who still don't know what the theme was will just have to be left in the dark, but let's just say it was most triumphant.
