This is actually more a footnote than anything else, but BI’s win yesterday over Claremont of Victoria (BC) represented the first win of an American team over a Canadian team in the history of the Northwest Invitational.  True, the Canadians have finished their field season and are on spring break with “half the team…(Read More)
