Iowa Icemen Looking Strong in Early PVL Tournaments
In the 2015 season the Iowa Icemen have competed in the Doble Classic and the Best of the Midwest. Due to busy schedule the Icemen were only able to round up 7 or 8 guys for both tournaments but were still able to go undefeated until losing in the final. At the Doble championship they lost to Great Lakes Lightning in 2, but were able to get their revenge on them when Icemen defeated both Great Lakes Lightning and Team Gateway in pool play at the best of Midwest. Again the Icemen started off strong going undefeated until the championship where signs of fatigue finally kicked in and lost a tough match to Team Pineapple in 2.
The squad is looking really strong and playing very well said Tim Falknor. "We are all looking forward to Nationals and like our chances of taking on our opponents in a best of 5 format instead of facing them after a 12 hour long and 6+ match day with no substitutes."
The Icemen will be participating in a Great Lakes Region hosted exhibition at McCormick Place in Chicago and will play one match against GL Lightning and one match against team Gateway.
They also have a couple of other small tournaments before Nationals but the most well noted is the Lloy Ball classic on May 9th. There will likely be 6 or 7 mens PVL teams participating. The PVL division there will consist of: Great Lakes Lightning, Team Pineapple, Team Gateway, Chesepeake, Penn Blast, and potentially team Florida.
