2016 Wild Card Winners

2016 Wild Card Show Results

The top three teams in the wildcard tournament receive bids to the 2016 NCWSA National Championships!  We had a live stream of the results and had some big plans with a video board, a presentation, and lots of graphics! Well we couldn’t get that stream to work, so we went with the quick and easy Google Hangouts On Air stream. We apologize for the technical difficulties. Oh well, we have a whole year for improvement.

As with our continued quest to gain more NCWSA.com writers (email secretary@ncwsa.com for more info), we are also actively looking for better and more interactive ways to incorporate the results of the Wild Card and Seeding Selection Show. Additionally, any thoughts on additional content to add to the show to make it more fulfilling would be welcomed. We hope to stay around the 20 minute mark even if we add content, and will probably maintain the “Halftime of Monday Night Football” time slot next year. Feel free to send any advice on improving the Wild Card Show to thencwsa+wildcard@gmail.com.
