On the opposite side of the country, Texas was also well represented at the California Invitational hosted at UC Berkeley. Two currently unranked Austin extempers reached the Quarterfinals round of the tournament: Isaac Martin of Anderson, and Robert Boley of Hendrickson. While no Texans finished the tournament as Semifinalists, Jackson Freeman of Westwood, currently 7th in the state points race, finished 7th at the tournament, and Sarah Lanier of Northland Christian, 21st in the points race, finished 5th. Our sincerest congratulations goes out to those mentioned above, as well as all who competed at the tournament.

Given Berkeley’s status as a Tier-2 National Tournament, points will be awarded as follows:

Isaac Martin and Robert Boley: 10 points

Jackson Freeman and Sarah Lanier: 40 points
