NPPL Las Vegas World Championships – We took 9th. We missed the cut by 18 points – meaning of the 21 teams they took 8 to Sunday and we just missed it. We had a super hard bracket and learned a few more lessons about the importance of scoring points in the NPPL and not just winning games (5wins, 3 losses was 18 points short. Two other 5-3 teams made it in.) The teams who played in the Finals (Top Gun and Savage) were in our bracket so we feel we played great. Watch out for us in 2012. It was a great event and we have a lot to build on for the 2012 season now. Can’t wait for HB in the spring.
Result – 4th Place Podium spot. We were disappointed with the finish. The team went unbeatable in the prelims and had the #1 seed going into the playoffs. All went well until we hit the Semi-Finals…and then sort of fell apart. A second consecutive 1st Place would have been great. It was right there in our reach – and we just missed it.
Max’d Kidz opened up their 2011 season last weekend playing Division 2 in RPL Event #1 in Southern California. The competition was stiff and the team came up just short of what would have been miraculous, a first place finish at their first Division 2 tournament, bumping up from Division 4 last season. The squad made it to the finals but couldn’t quite get over the hump and ended up taking 2nd place. First place would have been great, but we are still pleased with 2nd place to open up a new season in a higher division.
The team took First Place in the Five Man division, their second First Place finish in a row and third overall this season in RPL Events. They took Second Place in the other two RPL events they played in. The victory also clinched the Series Championship for the team.
