Both the Blizzard Varsity Blue and the 16u Blue teams fell short of their 7th inning rallies this past weekend as the East Metro 17u and the Minnesota Mash 16u won their respective age divisions by scores of 6-5 and 7-5 in the ScoutStop August Select Tournament.

The Blizzard 16u Black earned a 3rd Place finish while the Blizzard Varsity Black and 2017 Blue team both played their way into championship play this weekend.

This was the Blizzard Elite program's first tournament of the year with the ScoutStop Labor Day Tournament (14u/15u) coming up on September 5th-7th.  This four-game guarantee, wooden bat tournament is being played at six college fields in the Twin Cities: Siebert Field, Century College, Concordia St. Paul, DCTC, Northwestern and Bethel.
