The NWLA Tournament Presented by Visit Lenawee Regionals are now finished, and we have our field of 16 set for the National Tournament next month in Morenci, MI. Regionals was changed from four (4) locations to two (2), with the top eight (8) teams from the 2016 Tournament not playing. Seven (7) teams played in each regional. BWBL in Wilkes-Barre, PA, hosted the East Regional, with HRL in Eagan, MN, hosting the West Regional. Each team played four (4) opening round games, with the top three (3) teams qualifying. The bottom four (4) teams then played a single-elimination “death” tournament to determine the final spot.
In MN, Griffleball, HRL, and MNWA were the top three (3) teams, with BWACS winning the death bracket. In PA, AWAA, WILL, and BWBL finished top three (3), with RPWL winning the death bracket.
We expect all teams who qualified to come to Morenci, but we ask that those teams confirm that they will be coming by June 19, 2017, at 12:00 p.m. by informing NWLA Tournament Committee Member Sam Skibbe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
