Triangle teams shine at Presidents' Day events

Teams earn thirteen top 10 finishes

 

Presidents’ Day weekend saw nineteen (19) Triangle teams competing in three-day Presidents’ Day events in both Salt Lake City and Washington DC. There were many exciting matches, some great team moments both on and off the court, and many examples of perseverance, hard work, and sportsmanship.

Four teams were invited to participate in the Triple Crown Sports National Invitation Tournament held in Salt Lake City. This event is one of the most competitive club events each season and includes many of the top junior’s clubs in the United States. All Triangle teams were competitive in their age groups and the level of play was among the best on display all season.
