#6 Episcopal School (TX) vs. #3 Bullis School (MD), 7:00 p.m.
The day’s finale brings some national flavor with Episcopal out of Dallas, TX making the trip to play one of the top teams in the DMV, Bullis. Episcopal is coming off a successful regular season that saw them finish 18-3 with a trip to the state semifinals. The team is long on defense with multiple guys standing 6-4 or taller including top ranked 2019 defender Scott Bower (Virginia). Bower is helped by classmate Carson Raney (Loyola) and has goalie Prescott King (SMU) as a wall in the back. The offense starts and finishes with Georgetown-bound Brandon Meaux. He gets help from skilled sophomores Drew Wasserman and Caden Dundon. The team is built on playing solid defense with a fast, up-tempo attack. Bullis enters the tournament having won the coveted Interstate Athletic Conference championship over nationally ranked Landon (MD). Opponents have to scout the Bulldogs attack as it is highlighted by top ranked junior Connor Shellenberger (Virginia) and senior Robert Schain (Pennsylvania). Opponents attempting to stop that pair must also deal with a number of athletes in middie Bryson Shaw (Ohio St football), defenders Blake Rodgers (John Hopkins) and Kyle Fairbanks (Navy). Look for this to be an up and down game with a high volume of shots on goal.
