Both teams started out hot at Nationals, with both the A-team and B-team going undefeated the first day and winning their respective pools. Unfortunately, both teams were unable to win on the 2nd day in spite of some great matches against top teams in the tournament. But both teams made up for it by the following day, with the A-team beating Ohio State-A in the Division I Silver Bracket in the finals, and the B-team beating JMU-B in two games in the finals to win the Division III Silver Bracket.
