History
The Philadelphia Region was founded in the Fall of 2014 when the Metro Region was divided due to an increase in teams joining the NCCGA. The region is host to teams in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. University of Delaware and Villanova University have dominated to region since its inception in 2014, claiming sole victory of all but one tournament. The Region features two of the top players in the NCCGA over the last few years, Blake Reifsynder (Kutztown) and Tyler Stahle (Villanova), both who have claimed Nationals All-Tournament team honors. Villanova placed in the top 5 at Nationals in both Fall 2014 & 2015, while Stahle claimed all tournament team honors. The Philly Region will funnel into Zone #2 starting in the Fall of 2017 and has grown into one of the largest regions in the country. In the fall of 2017, Villanova and Delaware both played for a chance to win the National Championship in Las Vegas. The University of Delaware made another trip to the National Championship in the fall of 2018 in Myrtle Beach. They finished with a team score of 795.
