In Chadron High School there are many teachers and students that fill out brackets for the NCAA Tournament. This is a single elimination men's basketball tournament featuring 68 different teams from Division I, to determine the national championship.
Some of the different teachers that play are Mr. Bach, Mrs. Noble, Mr. Nelson, and Mr. McLain. A few students that play are Dom Nobiling, Brooks Roberts, Bryce Hudson, and Theo Marcy.
One of the major reasons people participate in the NCAA bracket, is to win money. Mr. Nelson plays for "a little money, because it makes the tournament more fun to watch." Dom, Mr. McLain, Theo, Bryce, and Mr. Bach also fill out brackets for a little bit of money.
Playing for fun is another reason to fill out a bracket. It is fun to see which of your teams do good, and it is fun to just watch all of the games. Mrs. Noble and Brooks both play for the fun of it, instead of for money.
Many people find the NCAA tournament a fun time of the year, and many people love playing and filling them out. It is fun for all ages, and even if your bracket does not win, it is still fun to be a part of the tournament.
