I’m so impressed with these kids. I think you should be, too, if you’re not already. That I can tell, only Miller and Beyer have matches left in the high school division, and they will be all-Americans on Sunday. Just unbelievable. A few more kids right on the doorstep. Rodriquez and Grey are on the front side of their middle-school brackets. More Sunday, but we’ll just be updating this post.
I’m telling you, this phenomenon is growing. So stoked to follow it and cover it. Wish I only had more time to cover it. (Foreshadowing, again).
