2013 Quidditch Tournament

Our Stow-Munroe Falls teams had a great time playing Harry Potter's favorite sport against teams from the Libraries of Peninsula, Twinsburg, Cuyahoga Falls, and (eventual winner) Hudson. Hudson hosted the tournament at their library field; each library played two games, so Stow's two teams each got to play once, and the team with the most cumulative points was declared the winner. Stow tied for third place, but it was all about the most fun you can have without flying a broomstick!
