We are now competing against the Cincinnati region. They take in all the sectional scores and the top 3 kids from each age group in the Cincinnati area advance to what’s called the team round. So we may or may not get any kids to that level, but should know in a couple days if we do, and I will pass along that info for you and where they go. The kid in red was the overall winner in that group and their score is the one that goes to be reviewed to see if they advance. We had 40 kids compete on Sunday.
