Nov 2016 Round Robin Results

Rocky hosted this month’s round robin this weekend. We’d like to thank all of the volunteers who stepped up to help us out. It was nice seeing so many new faces as well as our group of dedicated folks who show up year after year. It was especially nice to see Kassie Hudson who was a former bible bowler!
Rocky fared well in every aspect. We had 2 players make it to the final round of the quoting bee, we had 7 out of the top 10 in the top brain, we took 1st, 2nd and 4th in Division 1, and we had two teams win Most Christ-Like in their divisions. Well Done, Rocky!!

2015 National Champions!


Click image to see more photos


#RMCC1 was one of 70 teams competing at the national championship tournament in Cincinnati. We also brought 3 other teams with us. RMCC1 made it through the winner’s bracket into the finals undefeated by beating Bear Creek2, Bible1, Novesta, Mount Pleasant2, Community, and Beavercreek. Beavercreek made it back into the finals by winning the Loser’s bracket. In the finals, we had to defeat Beavercreek in one out of two final games (since we were undefeated and Beavercreek had one loss). Beavercreek won the first game, and they led at halftime of the second game, but we answered 5 in a row to give us a semi-comfortable lead, and when we answered #19 we knew we had it won. All three players got correct buzzes in the championship rounds. (Apparently Katie was saving them up since she didn’t buzz in any of the previous 6 games).
All this with cameras from TLC recording the game to be included in their upcoming mini-series, and a ballroom full of people watching.
The level of support we received from players and coaches throughout the tournament was encouraging, and made me proud of not only #RMCC1, but of all our kids. We repeatedly received glowing reports from other coaches about our teams. Other teams enjoy playing against Rocky, and they cheered us on as we moved into the later rounds. It’s exciting to watch the crowds grow larger in each round as teams are knocked out and they choose to come follow us. Having all the teams from our Round Robin (Bible, Northglen, and Mountainside), pulling for us meant a lot.
#RMCC2 won 2 games in the tournament and ended up tied for 25th! The quizmaster for their final game was impressed with their skill. Definitely some players to watch next year! Their team motto/goal was “Fun in the Face of Fire”, and they certainly achieved that. (Both the “Fun” and the “Fire” part!)
#RMCC3 was disappointed to lose their first two games in the tournament, but then went on to place 2nd in their challenger round robin, earning some medals in the process!
#RMCC4 also lost their first two games in the tournament, but won a couple of games in their challenger bracket. They achieved all of the goals they had set out for themselves so the tournament was a success for them as well!

2015 KCU Summer Tournament

Showing off our top brain skills! #RMCC1 placed 1st, 3rd, and 4th on the top brain test, which is unheard of. The announcer had some fun with this when announcing the top brain team average by asking people to guess who won. There was an outbreak of applause as we were announced. Our placement in the tournament and Round Robin moved up as well. Moving in the right direction! Let’s keep moving on up! (building more tension there…)
