GA/SC Sectionals – Saturday Recap

Today was more or less the perfect day for an tournament. While, in our opinion, wind severly detracts from the fun that is had while playing it does add an element to play that is not present with still air.

Not only that, but we found that SCAD was the most underrated team in the field.

We will touch on all six of those team’s performances and post some photos below.
