Damien MP wins Golden Desert

Congratulations to Damien’s McFadden and Peltekci for winning the 2017 Golden Desert Tournament, hosted by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.  Damien MP emerged from the prelims as the undefeated top seed and used that momentum to carry them through the out-rounds, only dropping one ballot along the way.  McFadden was also the tournament’s top speaker.  Congratulations to Damien and coaches Donny Peters and Chuck Ballingall on a fabulous weekend.

Pinecrest PR was the other finalist team, after closing out a semifinal bracket with Pinecrest JJ.  Notre Dame AR was the other semi-finalist team.  All four teams posted impressive tournaments with 5-1 prelim records.

Meadows BN, Camas LL, Brophy GS and Denverlake Independent RL were the other four quarter-finalist teams.

Polytechnic’s Whitford was 2nd speaker, Denverlake’s Lee was 3rd, Sage Ridge’s Kaul was 4th and Bellarmine’s Pierry rounded out the top 5.
