Cardinal Classic, the West Coast's premier quizbowl event, took place at Stanford University on February 1, 2003. Thirteen teams participated in a full round-robin, at the end of which two teams from Berkeley were tied with 11-1 records. They played a one-game final match, in which Berkeley Seth defeated Berkeley Larissa by a score of something like 325-210. Congratulations to Berkeley Seth (Seth Teitler, Juliana Froggatt, Eok Ngo, Ray Luo) on their victory, to Berkeley Larissa (Larissa Kelly, Jeff Hoppes, Nick Meyer, Jon Pennington) on a very strong second place, and to the top novice team, Davis A (Megan, John, Dave D., and Dave M.).

The top individual scorers were:
1. David, Berkeley Paul
2. Seth, Berkeley Seth
3. Steve, UCLA
4. Jerry, Berkeley Jerry
5. Jeff, Berkeley Larissa
6. Romero, Texas A&M
7. Jon, Berkeley Larissa
8. Nick, Berkeley Larissa

Thanks to all the volunteers who moderated, kept score, and made everything run smoothly.

We hope to see everyone next year at Cardinal Classic XIV!
