Here’s the lineup for each day:

March 31: Grades 4, 5 and 6

    Excellent run tourney, while they do crown a champ – given its a youth tourney – emphasis is on good sportsmanship. Even saw Paul Carc, giving defensive middie advice to a kid in between games.. Good stuff. If you have an above average youth team – check it out.
