The 2016 IWLCA Junk Brands Midwest Cup lacrosse tournament was held over the weekend at the Voice of America Athletic Complex in West Chester, OH. The regional tournament drew 67 teams of high-school aged prospective student-athletes who played in front of almost 150 college coaches from all three NCAA Divisions and the NAIA.
According to Mary Ann Meltzer, head coach at Lawrence Tech University, "the IWLCA Midwest Cup is a great tournament for us to evaluate recruits. We attract mostly Midwest players and we get to see some of the best players in the Midwest compete at one convenient location. The tournament is very manageable for us to get around and see everyone we need to see!"
Next up on the IWLCA Recruiting Tournament calendar is a regional event in Colorado. The IWLCA Western Cup will be held at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Denver on July 9-10, 2016.
