2018 Sea Glass Championship Recap
Last year was a very exciting series, with some favorites eliminated early on and some very close matches. In a competition that saw Cobalt Blue and Red lose in early rounds, Teal emerged triumphant over second-place Orange and won the first Sea Glass Championship title, to the delight of #teamteal. It was a brutal ending for Orange, which had a remarkable early showing in the tournament.
According to Mary McCarthy, one of Orange’s biggest fans, “Orange proudly remains sea glass’s rarest color and thanks to the Teal fans for leaving more of it out there for #teamorange to find.”
This year’s seeding was determined by looking at performance in last year’s tournament. The 2018 International championship was a spirited competition, and we look forward to more enthusiastic participation in this year’s very important and highly scientific competition.
