A note from Coach Metz:

Our teams played extremely well. Our first U12 team won both of their games. The varsity teams both made it to the finals but opted to forego the championship game and leave the tournament as cochampions! Great day!

Thank you to all the outstanding coaches and a huge thank you to Katy Hanrahan for all of the organizational work.
