The Alpine roster defeated Rogue in a 3-0 sweep, upsetting nearly every analyst’s prediction on how the series would turn out.
“I’m super happy with how the boys and I have progressed as a team coming into regionals. We did a good job identifying where things were going wrong and put a great plan together to implement changes to improve. Achieving Top 8 was a great success and going forward we definitely want to continue breaking through the top team barriers and start to take some series’ off them. We’ll be looking to learn from the first Regionals and come back into the next one with a stronger finish and we’re excited to get back to work and break that barrier.”Miztik, Alpine Team Coach
