Alaskan Assassins 2015 Karl Augestad, Chidi Nwokorie, Kyle Yan and Jimmy Gao

The ALASKAN ASSASSINS were represented at the 2015 NATT Teams in Washington, DC Nov. 27-29.  The team finishing 7-4 overall.  And placed tied for 2nd in the pool A but ended up 4th with the results of the tiebreaker.  This year the Alaskans faces some strong players on the opening cross over day.  Starting with Jimmy Gao TWICE winning in the 9th match in the best 5 out of 9 TIE win, first against the ATU Local 113 Thunder from Ontario Canada and later against Guyana Team 1 in the final match of the day.  Finishing off 2-2 in day one the crew stayed in division 5 for the next phase of the Round Robin pool A with 8 strong teams.  
Seeded #6 in Division 5 the Alaskan Assassins faced strong opponents from NY, NJ, GA, Iran and Puerto Rico.  A full variety of male, female, young, old, penhold, pips and solidly trained players. This second day was Karl Augestad's turn to pull out the 9th match win TWICE.  Including when the team was down 1-4 with a sweep of the last 4 matches to pull out a 5-4 victory against a steady NCTTA A team.
The last day proved to be the most challenging facing a young team, Nison's TTC from Brooklyn, New York.  Tied for first with the Alaskan Assassins, the team knew this was the most important match. Chidi and Kyle came out strong with early victories giving the team a 2-1 lead in match play.  Karl struggled with the players tricky servces and 3rd and 4th ball attack.  Klye pulled out a late win to offer a 3-4 position but Chidi faced the toughest challenge coping with mental frustration and aggressive play of Eric Amstislavskiy.  A tricky penhold player with fearless flips and loops from both wings.  One match short of the moving forward with a 3-5 loss to the eventual division champion.
Overall the team had a great experience and look forward to 2016
