Woohoo! First comment! I loved this! Just enough info and IMHO, the hint wasn't at all necessary! Good job!

An alternate solution would result by switching Alyssa to 8th and Megan to 9th. You did say that Alyssa only beat one girl. This does not necessarily mean that Alyssa RANKED ahead of only one girl. Clearly this is not a round robin tournament (i.e., one in which each player plays all other players), or else the odds that everyone could be placed in order, having beaten EVERY player beneath them, would be incredibly small. All we know is that anyone who BEAT another player is ranked above that player. This does not require the inverse.

Also, adding that Alyssa lost to every boy is unnecessary, as it is already known that she is ranked lower than all boys.
