The 2016 MBA Class B & C State Tournament Championships are being hosted by Dassel, Hutchinson and Litchfield. Hutchinson diamond was unable to soak in the late week heavy rains and Week 1 Saturday and Sunday games were forced to move to Brownton, a past Tourney host who was able to ramp up to keep the Tournament on schedule. The Tourney concludes with Champions being crowned on Labor Day in Class B & C.
Week 1 of the 2016 MBA Class C State Tournament Championships was not kind to local Class “C” teams in action with with RVL Class “C”/Region 6C Jordan & St Peter as well DRS Class “C”/Region 3C Montgomery, Shakopee Coyotes and St Benedict all losing opening round games.
