After a grueling week of competition, the first round of Curbed Cup 2017 is over, and upsets are the story this year. Not only did the two top-seeded neighborhoods exit the field; two newcomers sent them packing.

Day two saw another upset, with East MLK-183 trouncing Downtown, last year’s runner-up.
The third and fourth days of Round 1 saw more predictable victories, tough competitor North Loop prevailing over newcomer Westgate by a sizable margin and with Cherrywood eking out a narrow lead over South Lamar.
