Last night (Monday) we held a closed event to determine the 3 remaining spots on Team Midlands, which will be facing off against Team Low Country (best players from Charleston and Myrtle Beach) at the Midlands vs Low Country 5 on 5 taking place at the Charleston tourney on the 22nd of this month. We expected a small turnout for that simple purpose, but it turned into a full-fledged double elimination tourney. 17 people participated in the tourney to fight it out for the 3 spots and the 3 who were already on the team were there to observe (total of 20 people!).
This event was thrown together very quickly, and I don’t think anybody expected so many people to show up. The time and place was only finalized a few days ago, no advertizing was done and we were there for a very specific purpose. We even had to turn players away from the event once we explained the purpose of the tourney! It just illustrates how far the scene in midlands South Carolina has come. Because of the unexpected turnout we had time issues at the end but we arrived at a team that midlands can be proud of.
Team Midlands is:
Alternate: Rahjon (Hi-Tekk)
