The Western Canadian Championships were held on campus this weekend to great success. Many thanks to Teddy Harrison for serving as CA, Aaron Rankin, Julia Lisztwan and Savannah Howse for co-directing the tournament, as well as Sarah Davis on tabs and Wallis Rudnick on reg. We’re also very grateful to all the judges who came out, the alumni in particular.
