    why did brookfield debate each other in quarters?

      We don’t generally coach over unless it is strategically necessary to achieve a greater good for the team–the octafinal East/East round also happened but it was tabbed as a coach over because one of our alumni judged the round instead of a formal panel. I should also point out that in octas, a sophomore beat out the sitting co-champ (with Noah Haselow, his teammate), and then a junior in quarters, only to drop in semis and miss finals by 1 ballot. Coach overs have their place but tournaments like this must be remembered before we act too swiftly.
