Dr. David Lowry, a pediatrician in Platte City, is this year’s winner of The Landmark’s Bracket Battle.
As the champion, Lowry wins $100. He instructed The Landmark to make his winning check out to the Kansas City Humane Society, and the newspaper did so on Tuesday. Lowry picked up the check and posed for a photo.
This is the 18th year for The Landmark’s bracket contest, and one of the most unusual in that zero of our more than 180 entries correctly picked the tournament champion.
Connecticut, a seventh seed, won the national championship game over eight-seeded Kentucky Monday night.
As stated, none of the entries had Connecticut winning. In addition, none had Kentucky winning, so we were able to grade brackets before Monday night’s championship game was even played.
One person in our contest had Connecticut making it to the championship game, and only one person in our contest had Kentucky making it to the final.
Ivan Foley, Landmark publisher, finished with 114 points. All entrants who finished with a score higher than Foley win a one-year subscription to The Landmark.
