Triangle Teams Shine on Presidents' Day Weekend

Triangle saw twenty-six [26] teams competing at three-day events during Presidents' Day Weekend in both Kansas City and Washington DC. Over the holiday weekend Triangle teams competed in nearly 200 matches.

Five (5) teams were invited to compete at the Triple Crown Sports National Invitational Tournament in Kansas City. The event is a premier competitive event bringing together many of the top clubs in the nation to battle it out in an early-season tournament. Among the highlights in KC was 18 Black compiling a 6-2 record, on their way to a 3rd place finish in the 18u Select Championship Bracket. Triangle 14 Black finished 34th overall in 14u and finished 2nd in the Open Championship Bracket despite playing with a compromised roster consisting of eight healthy players.

Meanwhile in Washington DC, Triangle showcased its competitive depth across the board as eight total teams played themselves into the Gold Bracket (aka Championship bracket)on Day 3 across four different age groups. 18 Blue continued their strong start to the season by posting a T9 finish out of 64 teams in 18 Open, while 15 Blue finished T5 in 15 Open for their fourth Top-10 finish out of five tournaments this season.

Triangle's 14s teams showcased their age group's strong potential, with 14 Navy placing 2nd in the 14 Club division and 14 Silver [T5] and 14 Steel [T9] both posting Top 10 finishes in 14 Club. 14 Blue reached the Gold Bracket in 14 Open, finishing T9 with a 5-2 weekend record, while 14 White posted a 5-3 record and were the Silver B Champions for 14 Open. 13 White also placed into the Gold Bracket in 13 Club with a T5 finish, while 13 Black had a podium finish with a T3 final standing in 13 Open.
