For a little background, team Zombies was redeemed from 2011's theme "Your Worst Nightmare" where team Witches won the games. Team Swamp was redeemed from 2013's theme "Battle of the Biospheres" where team Jungle took the victory. Team Uruk-hai was redeemed from 2003's theme "Lord of the Rings" where Elves won 1st place. Lastly, Team Alien was also redeemed from 2011's "Your Worst Nightmare" as well as "The Apocalypse" where team Pirates took the gold.
This year was one for the books. Although Swamp did extremely well during the presentation round, winning first in nearly every category, all the teams did so well during the rounds that the relay was the determining factor for the winner. It truly was anyone’s game by the end. The relay’s end result is as follows: 1st place Zombies, 2nd place Aliens, 3rd place Uruk-hai, and 4th place Swamp. While the tallies from the end of the rounds were close, the ultimate winner of Competition Central 2019 was TEAM ZOMBIE! In second place, Team Swamp. Third place, Uruk-hai. Fourth place, Aliens. Everyone fought valiantly and represented their teams with respect and kindness. Another year, another central. This time next year another champion will be revealed!
