After a stormy night, weather wise, Team NJ were all up early to get some breakfast and head out to their respective venues for their first practice session. There was a lot of excitement as the athletes walked and took the bus with other athletes from all over the country.

Basketball had divisioning rounds today and played a number of short games against various opponents in order to produce divisions for the rest of the tournament. Team NJ put on a great show and looked like they will produce some great results out here.

The bowlers all took a ride out to Sun Valley Lanes to have their first look and practice on the lanes.

All other teams successfully completed practice and are now back at the dorms eating lunch and getting ready for Opening Ceremonies at 3PM Central time this afternoon.

More to come later today as I get reports from the other sports and pictures from the opening ceremony. Don’t forget that you can watch Team NJ enter the arena online at
