Preliminary Up North Challenge Tournament Schedule (and a few notes)…

All,

Overall we had a decent weekend in Three Rivers at the Camp Darryl Classic.  The U17 team finished at 3-2 in their best showing thus far.  We also had some good things from U16 group, including beating team that won the tournament from the week prior and a big two-handed dunk by Dylan “Higgy” Hignite!  That said, we are entering into what may be the last tournament for some.  April-May is what you get by joining MML, while July is earned throughout your time here.  You earn July by paying entry fees on time, being committed to practices/tournaments by being there, respecting coaches/teammates, and also handling business correct off of the court.  Frankly, not all of us have done that and I will meet with coaches to determine what July brings if anything was earned.

With the Up North Challenge, we head to the Mount Pleasant to play against some of the area’s best teams.  The format is somewhat strange in the sense that there are no pools.  Every division starts right away in bracket play so you MUST be ready to go right from  game one.  Due to the format, we will only know our first game time and the time of games if we win/lose.  Everything else will be determined as we go.  It is a unique and somewhat confusing format, but it does teach us that every game counts.  With that, here is our schedule:

 

U17:

Saturday, May 26 @10:30 am vs. Grand Rapids Storm at Shepherd HS- court 1 (white jerseys)

 

If we:

WIN- we play Saturday, May 26 @8:30pm at Shepherd HS- court 2 (blue Jerseys)
