Palm Springs Invitational Results (1/26-1/28/2020)
The Weakend Warriors 65 won the Palm Springs tourney and did it the hard way, losing their first game in double elimination bracket play and then coming all the way through the loser's bracket, 5 wins in a row, including beating each of the 2 teams that had beaten them earlier in the tourney. At the end of the final game salute, where teams normally yell first the other team's name, and then their team name, they added "KENNY" at the end! Kenny would have been proud of his team he brought together as manager. See winners photos at Tournament Champions page.
