CalChess Polgar Qualifier

I received the following email from TD Richard Koepcke regarding the playoff for the annual Susan Polgar National Invitational for Girls. The K-12 division at the CalChess Girl's Championship last month ended in a tie for first place between two of my students: Rebekah Liu and Samyukta Bhat.
Rebekah Liu won the match (1.5 to 0.5) yesterday at the Mechanics' Institute. When reporting to the USCF on who is our Representative for the Polgar tournament, you should list Rebekah Liu as the primary and Samyukta Bhat as the alternate.
Congratulations to Rebekah and good luck in Texas this summer! I am sure both girls will have many more chances in the coming years.
