MDTA Cup – Focus on Public Forum

Here are your near final Public Forum results for the 2012 school year.  In terms of team points, it appears we have a tie between Blaine HS and SPA with only the section tournament bonus points remaining.  It should be a great finish for the team awards.

For our individual results Jed Rothstein from St. Michael Albertville has a two point lead over his teammate.
