Several Miami teams competed at the Wayne State tournament in Detroit, Michigan a couple of weeks ago. The Wayne State tournament is the premier first-semester District Five tournament, attracting teams from all across the Midwest and beyond.
Miami's team of Ilya Galperin and Aaron Vinson achieved a 6-2 record cleared for the second time this year. Ilya was named the Second Speaker at the tournament. Two other teams from Miami attended - "The Mikes" - Mike Jensen and Michael Richardson went 3-5, and Lydia Elkins and Julie Wickenheiser were 4-4 in the JV division.
