Virginia Schenck who plays out of the Lakefield VFW in Minnesota last month won the spring regional online tournament. Viriginia was the winner of the her regional in the southwest corner of MN to get qualified. She then competed against all other regional winners and took them down. It's only about a dozen person tournament so it's a very valuable opportunity to get qualified for the National Championship. Make sure to keep that in mind with the upcoming regionals in October which most have been posted. Congrats Virginia, see you in Vegas!
