The first round of our Women of Boston Media tournament was full of surprises. Before we lay out the new matchups for our Elite 8, let’s take a look at what happened in the Sweet 16.

The Minihane Region

#1 Jenny Dell trounced #4 Shiri Spear with 85% of the vote.

In the most hotly (pun intended) contested bout of the first round, #2 Jen Royle beat out #3 Leah Hextall with 56% of the vote. Over 14,000 votes in total in this one.

The Dino Region

The shocker of the tourney: #4 Nancy “FGCU” Quill upset #1 Christa Delcamp with 57%.

Chalk in the second matchup with #2 Janet Wu (WHDH) defeating #3 Janet Wu (WCVB). 91% of the votes went to the victorious Wu.

The Callahan Region

An easy first round for #1 Bianca de la Garza. She dropped #4 Liz Brunner with 81% of the vote.

A tightly contest FOX 25 matchup. #2 Shannon Mulaire topped #3 Sorboni Banerjee.

The Stitch Region

A very solid showing for #4 JC Monahan, but she ultimately fell to #1 Maria Stephanos, who earned 54% of the vote.

#2 Jamie Erdahl blew an early lead to #3 Sarah French (perhaps after certain Miss Arkansas photos worked their way onto the voters’ computer screens). French advances with 59%.
