Best Thumbs in the West

Almost all of the best teams in the Bay Area were present (of the top tier teams, only Harker was unable to attend), and the Bells were scheduled to play them all in a round-robin format.

Over the course of seven long games, the squad showed great teamwork and took advantage of their extra player (the format was four-man teams) to rotate in and out frequently and unselfishly and keep everyone fresh. A number of close games – against rival and last year’s NorCal champ Bentley, Quiz Kids champion San Mateo, and perennial powerhouse Mission San Jose – all went in the Bells’ favor, and they took care of business against Bentley’s B team, Miramonte, Gunn, and Jewish Community High School to finish the day 7-0 as the undisputed Northern California State Champions!

As we won’t be able to attend Nationals in Chicago this year due to a conflict with graduation, our season has mostly wound down. However, we expect to field a very strong team next year as well to keep up the brand-new tradition of excellence!
