Here are the high school elite, high school select, and the open results.

MN Sun's-Greg 15U team finished in 2nd place in the classic bracket behind the Florida Rams in Kings Island, Ohio last week at the DI U15 National Tournament. The Rams finished 3rd in the country at last years U14 Nationals. The Sun's had a very strong pool with 3 of the top 9 teams from last year and came out in the classic bracket. In bracket play, they defeated the New Jersey Knights, the Indiana Rebels, the Maryland Lions, and the Tennessee Wings to get to the championship game. There they lost a tough fought battle to a very quick and strong defensive Florida Rams team. This year's Sun's team is very young with 7 players that could play U14 and 1 that could play U13. They will be playing up in the U16 bracket at the North Tartan Melt Down Tournament this weekend.

The Cedar Rapids Warriors will be at the Iowa City team camp this coming weekend and the University of Northern Iowa (where KK Armstrong and Kaitlin Oney will play this fall) team camp the following week.
