Over the course of the 2018 Fall tournament season ADVNC teams have had a tremendous amount of success. Despite several tournaments getting cancelled or postponed it has been a great Fall season!
The season started with the Western Kickoff in Sacramento. ADVNC had teams representing the Tahoe, Sacramento, East Bay, and San Francisco regions. After knocking off some early season rust on Saturday our teams came to play on Sunday.
Next, the East Bay 14U team headed down to Southern California to play in the OC Fall Brawl. The team went 2-3 for the weekend, playing some of their best lacrosse to date. East Bay Director Brent Ringwood said “I thought it was a really positive experience for both players and families. We came together as a team and both wins and losses highlighted the potential of the team as well the progress since our first tournament.”
The ADVNC tournament schedule has also included tournaments on the East Coast. The SF 2020 team participated in the Autumn Gold and Big 4 tournaments in November going 3-3 between both events. SF Director Mo Ryan said “we showed we have the talent and effort to play with any team in the country. We proved we belong in the top tier of lacrosse programs.”
Also in November our Seattle Starz program participated in the Emerald City Shootout. The Starz went 30-4 for the weekend and won 5 out of the 7 division they entered teams in.
At the beginning of December, the Seattle, San Francisco, and Sacramento Regions sent teams to the BlackJack Classic in Henderson, Nevada. Of the 16 ADVNC teams participating, 2 won championships and another 4 lost in the championship game. For the weekend, ADVNC teams finished with a combined record of 50-23.
Most recently the Tahoe, San Francisco, and Sacramento Regions all sent teams to the Gold Rush tournament in Petaluma. Of note: the SF 10U went 4-0 and won their division. The Tahoe HS team went 3-1 including a victory in the 3rd place game. Tahoe Director Mikie Schlosser said “the team showed that all the hard work they have been putting in over the past months paid off with a much improved tournament performance. We are excited to keep getting better.”
Next up for the ADVNC teams are tournaments in Petaluma, Del Mar, Palm Springs, and San Francisco.
At ADVNC Lacrosse we pride ourselves on our cutting edge training system to make players and teams better. Tournament play is where we get to showcase these newly honed skills and concepts.
