The following is our outline for the day:
5:15am - Departure from Transportation
(Kids eat breakfast in the vans, maybe bagels/cream cheese?)
8:00am - Arrive at Ann Arbor Pioneer High School
8:30am - Play begins (I couldn't convince them to push the start back to 9:00, but I got them
to agree to 8:30).
*At this time we will play St. Joseph, Ann Arbor Pioneer, and Detroit Catholic Central in a tournament format, so each person could be playing against a different school at any given time.
4:00pm ish - Departure. Sometime on the way home we will stop for dinner, likely at a sit-down restaurant (don't worry boys, not TGI Fridays).
What's at stake:
1. Our State Ranking - We do well, it goes up. We do poorly, don't expect a ranking when
the next ones come out.
2. State Seeds - You beat the best teams in Michigan, you likely get seeded at the State
Finals. A seed guarantees you don't face another seeded opponent until the Quarterfinals,
and maybe the Semis.
3. Pride - If you want to be a great team, you have to beat great teams. We've beaten some
very strong programs this year, and we get 3 more chances on Saturday.
