The Twin Cities Region was created in the Fall of 2014 for teams in Iowa and Minnesota, It now features schools in Nebraska as well. Iowa State and Iowa traded 1st and 2nd place in every tournament in 2014, 2015, and 2016 besides a lone victory from Minnesota (Twin Cities) in the spring of 2016. In the spring of 2017, Iowa and Iowa state failed to place in the top 3 in either tournament. Minnesota (Twin Cities) won both tournaments, while Creighton, Minnesota (Duluth), and Nebraska emerged as threats in the region. Nebraska even sneaked into Nationals as one of the final wildcards. The future of the region seems to be up for grabs, as it looks to be one of the most competitive in the NCCGA. The Twin Cities region will now feed into Zone #2 for Nationals Qualification. The Minnesota, Creighton and Iowa National Championship teams along with NIT participants Iowa State and Nebraska will continue to battle for the Twin Cities Region. Look for the Gophers to come out strong again.
