The tournament, consisting of seven matches for each of the 24 teams, will last until around 3 pm. The public is welcome to attend. This is a great chance to see some of the best teams in the state compete. There is no admission charge. If you would like further information or would like to help out in some way, please contact Sue Korosa at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can use help as timers and scorers and in selling concessions. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a memorial scholarship in Cory's name at Rose-Hulman where he was a student. Cory was a member of the 2005 state championship team that went to the national championships at Disney World in 2005.
