4/17-4/21/2002 - NIRSA Nationals Photos

On April 17th, 2002, we traveled to the Lone Star state for the NIRSA national tournament in Dallas, TX. We fared pretty well this tournament. We had match point twice against UC Davis to go to the Gold division, but we just couldn't pull it off. We ended up in the Silver division, only to lose to the Maryland Terrapins to get knocked out of the tournament. Click here to see the complete daily results. Below are some pictures from the tournament. Click on any picture to see a larger version of it.
