     Event organizers told us it's a great way to for teams to sharpen their skills for the upcoming season.

"The kids just started a couple weeks ago so for a lot of them this is the first action they've see this season. they're able to come play here, get a lot of sets in, get a lot of repetition, and get experience early on in the season," Yakima Valley Sports Director Rich Austin told KNDO.

     The event wrapped up around 8:30 Saturday night, where the Yakima Valley Sports Commission crowned the overall champion.
