Women’s Open pools and bracket preview

2019 Women's Open Preview

The pools have been set for the Women’s Open bracket at the 2019 Lakefront 7s (see above). As with the High School Girls bracket, 8 teams will advance from pool play to either the Cup or Plate Championship.

The winner of each pool will advance to the Cup Championship. The runner-up in each pool will advance to the Plate Championship. As always, matches in the championship stage are single elimination.

Originally, Women’s Social and Women’s Competitive would have been two distinct brackets. The new hybrid format was added due to the low number of teams entering on the Competitive side. By advancing teams to both Cup and Plate Championships we were able to keep the number of playoff opportunities the same while providing a broader variety of opponents for all.

The Women’s open bracket is scheduled to begin at 8:00 AM. Teams should submit their waivers at the check-in table by 7:00 AM.

The new format was added to expand the opponents for the select-side teams while ensuring that developing sides could still compete for a championship.

Peanut butter parking returns to the Lakefront 7s

peanut butter parking 2019

As in past years, the Lakefront 7s is collecting peanut butter to support the Hunger Task Force.

The Hunger Task Force works to prevent hunger and malnutrition by providing food to people in need today and by promoting social policies to achieve a hunger-free community tomorrow.

Hunger Task Force receptacles will be placed near the concessions and check-in area, as well as at the parking entrance (see venue map).

Park FREE with a 36 ounce donation

Parking is $5 at the Lakefront 7s. But we’d prefer you spent that money on peanut butter and made a donation instead. Any car that donates at least 36 ounces of peanut butter can park at the Lakefront 7s for free.

Of course, feel welcome to make a smaller peanut butter donation along with your $5 parking fee.
