Another Successful Lynn Lewis Tournament

October 24, 2016

 

Once again the Lynn Lewis tournament organizers put on a fantastic event.  With its unique style of rules and its extra attention to customer service, the Lynn Lewis is hands down one of the best women only tournaments in the world.

16 teams competed for the title in this cancer awareness fundraiser.  

Once again the tournament was honored with with the presence of it's name sake Lynn Lewis who has been fighting cancer for almost 10 years.  Lynn coached her team all the way to the Championship game only to lose to the mighty Lady Elite team.  The championship game featured top shelf competition, and ended with tears of joy and respect for Lynn's daily fight against this disease that affects us all.

Several teams played in their pink laced colored uniforms and accessories, The game officials dawned pink accessories including pink flags.  FLAGGING DOWN A CURE  has always been the theme for this event that was created 9 years ago by Mashonda Gilmore and it has gained international attention with her hard work as well as all on her team.  The amazing support of volunteers was ever present as many showed up to lend a free helping hand.

I can't wait until next years tournament which will be the silver anniversary of the event.  This tournament gets better every year !!!!!
