With over 1300 competitors and hundreds of teams, Southwest earns 3 team trophies at Nationals: 15th, 3rd and 18th places for our U1200, U1600 and Open teams. We were the only team in the country to earn significant trophies in 3 sections. Individual trophy winners for Southwest were Connor Robinson, Michael Hermanson, Wes Cannon, Jesse Alexander, Alex Hilden and Joshua Jones. We placed third at the Minnesota State championships this year only 0.5 points out of first. Zach Adams, Jeff Williams, Peter Bertel and Wes Cannon earned individual trophies at State.
