Last Saturday, Swarthmore College Bowl sent three teams to brave snow and SEPTA at Penn’s annual tournament, traditionally one of the largest in the country. The A team of Chris White ’05, Arthur Chu ’06, and Emily Ullman ’06 managed to win third place (and first among teams with no graduate students) with an 8-3 record despite missing a person, while the B team of Micaela Baranello ’07, Rachel Winer ’06, Scott Blaha ’07, and Alex Glick ’06 fared respectably at 5-6 and the all-freshman C team of Nathan La Porte, Ben Blonder, Mike Rosenberg, and Katie Santohigashi (none of whom had ever played in more than one tournament before) got lots of close games and valuable experience en route to a 2-9 record. In addition, Chris was the tournament’s second-highest scorer with over 50 points per game.
Thanks to Chris White for providing the results.
