In the fall of 2017, another first time champion was crowned. Notorious D.I.G took the end of the season tournament in 5 games. It was not an easy road for the second seed, but one that ended in triumph. Early in the night they fell behind to the number 3 seed and defending Spring season champs 1 game to 0. However led by power hitter big Frankie, they won the next three games to take the set 3 games to one, advancing them to the Championships. In the Championship game, Notorious faced a mighty opponent in the #1 seeded Ninja Turtles. The Turtles had defeated the D.I.G twice earlier in the year. Not intimidated at all, Notorious came out swinging by winning the first game 24-22. Turtle power glowed in the next game as they got their revenge, winning 21-11. The third game was another battle that ended with Notorious D.I.G winning 21-19. Again the Ninja Turtles fought back by winning game 4 21-15. Not to be denied their first title, Notorious D.I.G captured the 5th and final game 15-12 to take home the plaque. We hope to have the champs back for our next season in the Spring. Get your team together and see if you can dethrone the Champs!!!!! Congratulations to our Fall season Champions! See you soon.
