The Royals went head to head against UT’s team twice in the first and final games of the tournament. Johnson lost the first game and won the last game.

The team also said goodbye to students Ross McSherry, Alex Eaton and Matt Kollman as it was their final tournament at JUTN.

At the end of the tournament, McSherry, who was a senior co-captain with Blake West this year, gave the team his last speech for the tournament.

He said that even though his passion may come and go for the sport, his passion for the team stays constant.

The team voted during the week to name Blake West and Nate Plyler as next years senior co-captains. Sean Torres and Colin Giebler were voted in as junior co-captains.
