It was a very interesting competition this year. Catawba Valley took the top spot in each category. WTCC’s Omar Saffouri actually tied for first place and lost the top spot during a sudden death. Jisub Kim was tied for 3rd with another student and won his spot during the tie breaker event. Overall rank is usually determined using the top three scores and the top team score from each school/campus. North Campus’ top three scorers during the individual phase were Jisub Kim (22), Clive Ling (20) and William Finley (20). Main Campus’ top three scorers were Omar Saffouri (24), Joseph Caswell (20) and Mohammad Issa (19). When the final scores were totaled our North and Main Campuses were actually tied. The judges had to go to the 5th individual score on the morning individual round to break the tie between our two campuses. What an impressive statement about our school, the faculty, and our students!!!!
Please join me in congratulating them on a job well done!
