The Boys at Shaker High School near Albany, NY had their own case of March “Madness” this past weekend.

The NCAA tournament is getting ¬†underway and there are brakcets available at a number of websites. A group of boys at Shaker set up a bracket that identified four girls in each grade to compete against one another and promised a “winner” on Saturday. School officials got wind of it and shut it down. They also sent an email to students.

Here’s what one girl, who was on the bracket, had to say.
