Five varsity teams and two prep teams competed for the Midwest Conference Championship last weekend in Cincinnati, Ohio. 

In the prep division, the RHI Jr Racers won first place by defeating the second place Cincinnati Dragons in the best-of-three championship.  The Jr Racers clinched the championship with two victories on Saturday while the Dragons got their first victory of the season in the third game on Sunday.

In the varsity division, first place went to the Cincinnati Dragons who went 5-0 on the weekend including a 67-37 championship victory over the WASA Bucks.  This is the first Midwest Conference Championship for the Dragons after finishing in second place the last two seasons. The WASA Bucks finished in second place with a 3-1 record in pool play before losing to the Dragons in the championship game.

Thank you to the host, St Xavier HS in Cincinnati, and to all the teams for following COVID protocols to allow for a safe conference championship this year!
