Midwest Sectional Champions – Women 8.5 Combo! March 9, 2014
Congratulations to our Women’s 8.5 Combo Midwest Champions! The team finished the weekend with 3 wins and one loss. Illinois took second place followed by Indiana, Wisconsin, and Ohio. The final standings were down to the wire Sunday. Our Michigan Champs needed to win their match versus Ohio, and Wisconsin needed to take one of three courts versus Illinois. After the intense competition came to an end, our team defeated Ohio 2-1, and Illinois beat Wisconsin 2-1 confirming our women would bring home the title by one individual win. Congratulations, ladies, on your AMAZING season and bringing home the Championship crown! Combo league does not have a National playoff.
