RCTC to host Region XIIIA Tournament

Yellowjackets & Raiders Claim Titles; Turn Sights on Tournament

October 27, 2018

Rochester Community & Technical College and Central Lakes College both stormed through their respective Divisions on the way to 12-0 Conference marks and hosting rights for the NJCAA Region XIII A & B tournments. 

With the regular season championships out of the way, the Yellowjackets and Raiders will now focus on navigating the Region brackets for the right to advance to the NJCAA Division III National Tournament in Rochester. 

In a coin flip, M State-Fergus Falls and Ridgewater (tied at 8-4) assume the #2 and #3 seeds in the Region XIIIA field, while SCTCC will ride the momentum of a dramatic, come-from-behind 3-2 win over MnWest in the last match of the day to play their way into the Region XIIIA field. 

Region XIIIB final seeds were also decided on the last day, with Mesabi Range earning a win over Itasca Community College to grab the #3 spot, while Hibbing's loss at Central Lakes pushed them into the #4 spot.  

NJCAA Regional play will begin on Friday, November 2 and conclude Saturday, November 3 in Brainerd and Rochester.
