2004 Southwest Regionals

May 2004

by Ray Mefford

The Southwest Regional Finals was held Friday and Saturday, April 30-May 1 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Without representation from Hawaii and Northern-California/Nevada District, the field was limited to 6 teams and a triple round robin was held.

Briargate #1, coached by Jordan Schneider and Eric Lind, led from the beginning and finished with an undefeated record, averaging 267.67 per game, with opponents averaging only 17 points against them.

Briargate #2 tied with a very strong contender from Eastside A/G in Tucson, AZ for second place. It had been pre-determined that ties (except for 1st or 5th) would be broken by points, and Briargate #2 edged out Eastside by 150 points to clinch 2nd.

Raymond and Cindy Mefford did an amazing job of hosting the competition, offering great facilities, hospitality room, goodie bags, great trophies, and souvenir shirts - everything went flawlessly and they are to be commended for a fantastic regional finals.

The final results are as follows:
