Girls 7 Blue Farmington Tournament

By Owatonna Basketball Association 02/06/2021, 5:15am CST

BRACKETS:

  • The brackets will be posted to Tourney Machine by end of day Thursday, 2/4/21
  • Please download the Tourney Machine App as that is where all brackets, updates and scores will be posted
  • Scheduling was a bugger this year because…:

(1) We had to combine our Boys Tournament from Dec with our Girls, leaving some spacing issues

(2) We tried hard to keep our player in PODs and reduce cross traffic

(3) We kept all divisions at one location.

  • All divisions will play their entire tournament on one day.  In the spirit of all that is COVID and change, we  had added some Friday night games to for a few 8th Grade Divisions.  We know this is not the norm.  Our hope is you see it as a sneak peek into what High School ball means for those that are aging out of travel after this year.
