In this very difficult tournament for our World’s team, the amount of learning and stress was quite strong. Those few who went have discovered that the experience was brutal, especially given the fact that the tournament consisted of many teams from the country. The trip may have been short to Ithaca, but the competition was stiff and tough. However, one of the fun parts of this tournament, besides witnessing the variety of teams participating in this difficult tournament, was seeing Sarah Hofmann, our World’s Captain, and her partner Ben Frazer nearly breaking into quarterfinals! Woo-hoo!
