The third and final weekend of the Mid-East Qualifier saw ten more HPSTL teams in action. The tournament hosted 14s and 15s in Indianapolis where Hi-P had four more teams finish in the top 15 of an incredibly talented field.
15 Orange had the highest finish of any team as they finished 5th overall and had a record of 8-1. They did not drop a set until their quarterfinal loss to the overall number 1 seed. 15 Royal had an exciting weekend as they finished 11th in Open after two exciting deuce set tiebreakers on Day 2!
Illinois 14 National and 14 Royal rounded out the top 15 performers for Hi-P as they finished 14th and 15th respectively in the USA division. The two teams also played each other twice over the tournament with both matches going 14 National's way.
Illinois 152 Select made the largest improvement in their rank. They beat their seed by 27 spots! They definitely earned some respect as they were a challenge match away from Gold on Day 3. They lost the tough match to the eventual runner-up.
A few teams played locally last weekend and brought home the hardware. Illinois 16 Future (pictured right) won their local 16s tournament at Center St. Louis. On the boy's side, 14 White (pictured on the homepage) were the Gold Medal Winners of the April Classic at the Pavilion at Lemay! Congratulations!
IL 16 Future wins their local 16s tournament!
