Desert Storm is a tough, traditional double-elimination tournament that draws teams from all around Utah, Arizona and Nevada. Some say it's as tough (or tougher) than the Utah State Championships. In other words, placing here is a big deal. Unfortunately Desert Storm will not have a Girls Division this year. For the Boys Varsity they will place the top six per weight class with a trophy for the Team Champion and Team Runner up. On the Boys JV side, they will place the top four per weight class, with JV Team Champion award.
