This was Strider and Elizabeth's 5th tournament together and they seem to be really hitting their stride (haha) these days. The competition has ramped up -- there were 12 teams in their division this time -- but they still managed to stay undefeated and won. We are so thankful for the way they've been taught and coached in this league; they're learning some great skills!
I worked in the ballot checking room for 17 hours over the 2 days, so I didn't get to see Strider debate... but I have a front-row seat for plenty of that at home. I did duck out a couple times to see if I could say hi to him and tried to snap a picture, but this is the face I got.
At least someone in the background enjoyed my picture-taking!
They have one final tournament left, next month. Don't mess with Frank-McDowell!
