AAU State Champions - Division 1 / Gold
June 5, 2011

It was an exciting weekend!  We didn't lose a match and wonour 3rd state championship in a row!

The finals were against a VERY good MVA team.  We have played them a number of times this year and this weekend we beat them twice. 

It was a fun weekend - but this week it's time to concentrate on school finals.  The AAU tourney in Florida and Nationals are going to be foremost on my mind after my last final on Thursday!
