Speaker: The SWART-Dogs were named after their coach, Kenton Swartley and have been competing for several years. This year’s challenge was received in Jan 2012 and has been entered into competitions in Kansas City and Minnesota. At the Minnesota 1000, the team won 1st place which qualified it for the Nationals in St. Louis. During this year’s challenge, the Rebound Rumble, a game is played between two alliances of three teams. Each alliance competes by trying to make as many basketball shots as possible during a 2 minute 15 second match. Come hear how they did.
