Our team headed to the Badger Invitation at the University of Wisconsin-Madison this past weekend for our last tournament of the fall semester. This tournament was filled with top notch teams, but we competed very well.

The tournament began with pool play, where we played Wisonsin’s A team, GVSU, and University of Milwaukee. Milwaukee was first, and as per usual, we started off slow and lost in a close match. GVSU was another close match, but we pulled through with a win. Wisconsin A was our most difficult opponent of the day. Despite us all playing well, we could not top their impressive game. This pool play put us into the Bronze bracket for the following day.

Bracket play began early with two quick wins against two very good teams, Iowa State and Marquette. We were all playing our best and had some great moments. We made it to the championship bracket where we played University of Nebraska in a very tight match. Unfortunately, we could not pull out the win, making us end the tournament as runner-up in the Bronze bracket.

Overall, this weekend was very exciting with it being our biggest tournament yet. Everyone really showed their talents and made us see how good we could be as a team. We cannot wait to see how our season continues in the spring!!

Go dawgs! 🙂
