Posted by Joe Leeson-Schatz on October 9, 2015After an amazing start to the season, which included a quarter-finals appearance at UMKC and a finals appearance in novice at Rutgers, Dhruv Sehgal & Jason Smith won their pod at the Weber State Round Robin. This impressive feat was accomplished despite the fact that this was Binghamton's first invitation to a varsity round robin tournament in this history of the organization. Making it to finals at a round robin is no easy task since, unlike regular tournaments, competitors compete against a small hand-selected pool of the best competitors from around the nation.
After the conclusion of the round robin, Weber State hosted their open invitation where Dhruv and Jason advance to quarter-finals. This represents the second national tournament in a row where Binghamton has made an appearance in quarter-finals. Team members Lenny Herrera and Jesus Cepin also qualified in elimination rounds and advanced to octo-finals. Overall it makes for one of Binghamton's best nationally showings from the start of the season.
