Champion – HAWKS 16’s

For the first time this year, four HAWKS teams competed in the same tournament, the Top of the Rockies, hosted by Dave Matthew’s Colorado Chaos organization on May 18-20 at Green Mountain High School in Lakewood. The HAWKS 17’s played in the top division, Division I, while the HAWKS 14’s, 15’s, and 16’s competed in Division II. All of the teams made it to the Championship bracket of their division after pool play with the 15’s and 16’s going undefeated (3-0) during pool play.

The HAWKS 17’s made it to the quarterfinals before losing to eventual champion Doherty. The 17’s ended up with a 4-2 record in the tournament.

In an exciting championship game, the HAWKS 16’s beat the HAWKS 15’s in the last minute of play. Earlier, the HAWKS 15’s eliminated the HAWKS 14’s in the first round of bracket play in Division II. The 16’s ended up 6-0 while the 15’s were 5-1 in the tournament.

Congratulations to all the teams, players, and coaches for a great weekend showing.
