Who are the semi-finalists?

The Tournament of Champions is held twice during course of the calendar year: once in the summer (April-August) and once in the winter (October-February). For each month during the tournament the team with the highest total cumulative score at each venue is crowned the monthly semi-finalist for that venue. A designated week in September and March is semi-finals week for the summer and winter tournaments (updated here). The semi-finalists will face-off during this week at their normal trivia venue, with the winning team advancing as a finalist. All venues are eligible for the $5000 grand prize and finals!
