The Hornettes will travel to Freeburg this weekend to play in the Monster Mash Tournament. Twelve teams will compete in the tournament this year. This year’s tournament will include: Benton, Collinsville, Alton Marquette, Nashville, Okawville, Columbia, Chester, Teutopolis, Freeburg, Christ Our Savior, Gibault, and Waterloo.
The twelve teams were split up in to four pools. Pool A is Benton, Okawville, and Freeburg. Pool B is Collinsville, Columbia, and Christ Our Savior. Pool C is Alton Marquette, Chester, and Gibault. Pool D is Nashville, Teutopolis, and Waterloo.
The Hornettes will begin the day in pool play. All of the Hornettes pool play games will be played at St. Joseph’s Grade School in Freeburg.
Nashville will get the tournament started against Waterloo at 10 a.m. The Hornettes will then play against Teutopolis at 11 a.m. The Hornettes record in pool play will determine where the Hornettes would play next.
The Hornettes can either be placed in the Gold, Silver, or Bronze bracket, depending on their record in pool play. The top finishers in each pool will play in the Gold Bracket, the second place finishers in the Silver Bracket, and the third place finishers in the bronze bracket.
The Gold Bracket games will take place at Freeburg High School. The Silver Bracket games will take place at Freeburg Grade School, and the Bronze Bracket games will be played at Smithton Grade School.
No matter where the Hornettes finish in pool play, Nashville will play their third game of the tournament at 3 p.m. The Hornettes will play the team from Pool B, that finished with the same record in pool play.
