Mankato Swing

UWEC Forensics travelled to Mankato this last weekend to attend the Mankato Swing Tournament hosted by MSU-Mankato and Southwest Minnesota State University on the Mankato Campus.  This fun fall tournament hosts many of the programs in this area of the country and offers many collaborative awards not given at some regular season tournament.  Because of the small entry, we did not bring home a Team Sweepstakes trophy based on entries, but instead won 1st place in Limited Entry Sweepstakes (best of the small entries). 

Our own Tennisha Sonsalla was voted Best Dressed for the weekend and Heidi Feyereisen Top Judge at her very first tournament as a judge. Here are the specific results.
