Wow what a close race between the W5RU team and the W6YI team in November 2014 ARRL SS Phone

Awesome writeup by Steve London N2IC

Who was the first to earn a Clean Sweep this year?
That honor goes to team W5RU who made the sweep in the
Multioperator, High Power category at 0024Z. This is the
same team that made the first Sweep last year, using the
call sign KG5VK. Their last section? Virgin Islands.
Multioperator, High Power (MH)
72 teams competed in the Multioperator, High Power
category. 13 new section records and 4 new division
records were set. This year, there was a close battle
between the W6YI team (K6AM, N6AN, N6KI,
W2PWS, W6YI) in San Diego and the W5RU team
(KN5O, K1DW, K5ER, W5WZ, KG5VK) in Louisiana.
When the dust settled, team W6YI emerged victorious by
a mere 14 QSOs. 
Note: Team W5RU also set new division and section records - KG5VK
