First Annual Let It Fly Classic

On August 14, 2015, eight teams ages 16 & under battled it out at Highland Park in the sweltering heat. After two great first round games, Team Lynn & Team BNF distanced themselves in the Western Brackets. In the Eastern Bracket Team Cambridge & Team Revere distanced themselves. After this round it was clear who the favorites were as Lynn and Cambridge set up a great finals matchup. In the final round, Team Lynn was able to pull away from Cambridge behind the amazing performance from the tournament MVP, Jaylen "The Bull" Johnson, and a strong supporting cast.
