Dylan and Tommy both finished with the score of 5.5 / 7. Dylan started out 5/5. With a little more experience, he could contend for the title next time. He ended up tying for 5th (7th in tie break for 2nd grade) in his second National Event and Tommy tied for 6th (7th in tie break for 1st grade) in his first ever National Championship. Another student of mine James Shao also scored 5.5 / 7 and he tied for 7th. Congrats to all three! Posted by Picasa
