Our players at Western Washington University (Colton Ronk, Kyle Danielson and Conner Pichette) did their part to help the WWU team make it to the NCAA Tournement for the first time, making it to the semi-finals before being knocked out by UCSD Tritons in the second round on Sunday.  Check out their story here.
