This year’s champions, the Springfield Spartans, join past winners, Council Rock, Moorestown, and Chestnut Hill. The Spartans fought their way through two rounds of round robin play and the final bracket to beat fellow No. 1 seed from the East bracket, Horsham.

Wissahickon, garnered the iron women award, coming from a play in bracket to lose in the semifinals and then emerge victorious and in third-place game over Chestnut Hill for a total of seven games for the day.

This year the event included the first competitive flight for the 5th / 6th Grade group as Wissahickon edged home team Abington to take the championship.
