We only played in two tourneys. We came in 2nd (3-2) at the ASA D NIT in Itasca and we went 0-2 in the ASA State Metro. If we are going to do better we'll need a bigger commitment to tourney ball.
Next year we will shoot for Arlington Heights on either Tue or Wed A league. Should be better competition and fun.
