June madness - Center tournament time
SCOTT DELL | SUBMITTED
Austin Miller lays in two of his 17 points for Heritage
Paper Co. during the 14-to-17-year-old league championship game.
Spring sports are winding down at the Anna Maria Island Community Center as the Island prepares to jump into summer mode. That means its tournament time.
The tournament brackets have been set, and seeds are determined by the end of the year standings in each age division. If there was a tie in the record standings, then seeding was determined by the head to head competition results between the two teams. In the case of Ross Built Construction and Walter & Associates in the 11-13-year-old basketball division, that was still a tie and they had to go to points against during the season to determine that Ross Built Construction was the number one seed.
In the 8-10-year-old basketball division, there was also a tie for first place between Beach Bistro and Beach Bums. The Beach Bistro team will get the first round bye and number one seed because it won the head to head matchup between the two teams.
In the 14-17-year-old basketball division, Walter & Associates captured the number one seed in the final game of the season matchup over Heritage Paper Co.
In the adult basketball division, there was a tie for first place between the Bowes Imaging Center team and the Island Sun newspaper team. Both teams had a record of 6 & 2 but the Island Sun will get the first place seed after defeating Bowes Imaging in the head to head matchup.
In the adult soccer division, Island Pest Control will get the first place seed with its 7 & 1 record. The second place Sato Real Estate team only had one loss as well but recorded three ties and four wins during the regular season and did not have as many points as Island Pest Control.
The tournament championship is all about which team is hot going into the tournament and playing the best. The regular season records are tight, and the teams were very equal this season. This should bode well for some very climatic tournament games with overtimes and shootouts. The end of every season is a fun and exciting time. Champions will be crowned both on the field and on the court. Follow your favorite teams and show your support. It’s tournament time and from here on out it’s win or go home.
