Congratulations to Gonzaga, convincing winners of this year’s National Club Championship, retaining the title they won for the first time last year.
The event has greatly improved over the past couple of years; this must be due in significant part to the rule changes brought in that make teams more representative of the clubs throughout the year. This year the event was almost too successful, since with only 4 rounds it was not possible to distinguish well between the teams that finished in 2nd-5th places.
One of the best aspects of the entire event was the live commentary by Alex Lopez and Stephen Jessel. I only caught the last half an hour or so, but is was very well done and entertaining. Here’s hoping we will see more such coverage for future events.
