It’s been two weeks since the 2018-19 Maze Race ended, and it has been a joyful experience from September 6 until January 31! We want to congratulate the 3 marbles that were able to win a medal in this tournament:
🥉#Illusions, who had a disappointing 2017-18 Maze Race winning 4 games and losing 6! He stepped up this season as went 6-4-0 and was the 6th seed for the playoffs, and he lead himself to winning the bronze medal despite him being an underdog in the preseason!
🥈#FlakyGreen, who was one of the biggest favorites coming in the tournament, has definitely made a showing in this Maze Race! He lost his first 2 games of the tournament, but then went on a huge run winning 7 of his last 8 regulation games and finished at 7-3-0 and was awarded the 2nd seed! Soon after, he punched his ticket to the 3rd annual Maze Race championship but his incredible run came up just short when he got there! Winning silver was a huge accomplishment for Flaky Green, as now he’s 1 of only 5 marbles to add two medals to his/her collection!
🥇#RubyFalls, who has returned to the Maze Race after winning bronze in the 2016-17 Maze Race, has been a stud all regulation long, as she went 7-3-0 in the regulation, and had really only one bad game against the worst marble in the tournament, Orange Swirl, in round 9, as she lost 3-0 and was probably the biggest upset ever in a regulation game in AAMC history! That loss didn’t affect her in any way! She was the 4th seed for the playoffs, as she beat White Color Polkadot in the quarterfinals, Moon Swirl in the semifinals, and Flaky Green in the championship! Ruby Falls has posted history in this Maze Race, becoming the only marble in AAMC history to win two all-time medals in the same tournament!
🏆Congrats on these three medalists on such a tremendous 2018-19 Maze Race!!!!
