The remaining teams are one step closer to securing their spots at Region IV Championships in Hawaii and being named Utah State Cup Champions! The weather was fairly nice throughout the day with wind being the major issue, however nothing could dampen the competitive spirits of our athletes who battled all day long, sometimes including overtime. Sunday will be a day off before back at it for the glory on Monday!
