My First Tournament

And thank you to Professor Schilling for being an awesome coach and helping me prepare for a good first experience. He lead our team to a Gold Medal Team Victory.


Nice post Redfined. I can relate to the anxiety before your first tournament. I think it was my student Tim that caught you in the guillotine.
