The second round of TallyMadness has concluded, but not before a bundle of upsets took place.
The only 1-seed still in the mix is Matt Bryan of Smith Bryan & Myers. Nick Iarossi of Capital City Consulting lost to 9-seed Steve Shiver of The Advocacy Group by just seven votes, while Bill Rubin of Rubin Turnbull & Associates fell to No. 8 Hayden Dempsey of Greenberg Traurig.
The Cinderella run of Metz Husband & Daughton’s Alli Liby-Schoonover (16) continues. Liby-Schoonover moved past No. 9 Jason Unger of GrayRobinson.
The other matchups indicate 2019 may be another “Year of the Woman” — a half-dozen women made the round of 32, and five advanced. In addition to Liby-Schoonover, Ashley Kalifeh of Capital City Consulting, Katie Webb of Colodny Fass, Tracy Mayernick of The Mayernick Group and Heather Turnbull of Rubin Turnbull & Associates secured spots in the Sweet 16.
The third round of TallyMadness, sponsored by Table 23, is underway. The next round of voting ends 1 p.m. Friday.
