On January 13, 2016, the 2015 Nutrena Tournament has concluded its championship games at the Pohnpei State Softball field located in Kolonia Town. The games started at 5:30 and ended at 8:30 in the evening. The Nutrena Tournament has become part of Pohnpei Sport Calendar of Activities and always sponsored by the supplier of Nutrena feeds for Pohnpei. The Co-Sponsors of the tournament are Seven Stars Store and Pohnpei Sports Office.
Participating teams for this year’s tournament are the followings:
- Team Ekis Ekis
- Team Me Mehn Kana
- Team Pohnpei ACE Hardware
- Team Nett
- Team P4
- Team LP Gas
- Team NinSei
The championship rivalry was held between the top two teams selected from the round robin, between Team Net and Team LP Gas. Both Games of the night ended with a ten difference regulation (10 points difference) causing the lights at the field to shut off early. Even with the early lights out, spectators and everyone enjoyed watching the games under the excellent weather of the night.
Awards were given out in cash to the following top three teams:
1st Place Team LP Gas $500.00
2nd Place Team Nett $300.00
3rd Place Team Ekis Ekis $100.00
