Title: US nationals
Post by: mspart on May 05, 2022, 05:03:23 PM
I didn't even know US nationals was happening.   Now it is over.  With the new Final X format where a previous world medallist has the final in the WTTs, US nats just doesn't seem all that big a deal to me.   It used to be that the winner of US nationals got the bye in WTTs.   Now they don't even bother with US Nats.   It is a shame really.   Anyway, they were done last week.

Big upsets at 79kg. McFadden winning the whole thing was very surprising. He had quite the run through his side of the bracket.

I believe was down 6-0 to IMar then stuck him at the end of the first period. Then he took out Chance and Joseph.

On the otherside of the bracket, Joseph took out Dieringer. Think Dieringer had a comfortable lead then got thrown on his back with short time.

Ringer did come back for 3rd.   But I don't recall any real pre event hoopla or anything.  Like I said, I didn't know about it until I saw that Ringer was upset on
