38 HPSTL teams competed in downtown St. Louis this past weekend and found tons of success including 5 medalists, 16 top 10 finishes, and another Open bid.
Girls: Five of our seven Royal teams finished top 10 in the Open Division (12R=7th, 14R=7th, 15R=5th, 17R=3rd, and 18R=5th).
All but one of our teams competing in the Premier Division finished top 10 (17O=2nd, 16O=3rd, 14W=9th, 13O=6th, 12O=5th). Additionally our 12 White team finished 8th in the Club Division.
Boys: 15 and 17 Royal led the way with their second place finishes, followed by 16 Royal and Orange, who tied for 5th. 16 Orange punched their ticket to the Open Division of Nationals in Dallas. They are the 5th HiP team to earn their bid in 2016 and the first Orange team earn their spot in Open this year.
18 Royal placed 9th and our 14s Illinois team finished 11th, the highest finish ever by one of our Illinois teams in a qualifier.
Overall it was a fantastic weekend. Now our high school boys take a break to compete for their schools and our girls gear up for qualifier season. For more updates, check out our monthly newsletter at http://www.HPSTL.org/newsletter.
