The PS 282 New York KnightsSo, the tournament has ended, and we’re safe at home. It was a great experience, and a great success (except for the nasty virus, which has now moved on to me 🙁 !). The team came home with a total of four trophies–two individual tropies, and two team trophies. The fifth grade team (competing in the K-6 U1000 division) came home with 10th place. That’s 10th in the whole country, and it brings a big trophy as the reward. The fourth grade team (competing in the K-5 U800) took 14th. Again, a spectacular result, and a very nice trophy. The best part, of course, was the teamwork, the competition, the camaraderie and the mental exercise. By the time of the team dinner, and then the chaotic, loud, and unpleasant awards ceremony, everyone was happy, proud, and exhausted!
