4 Champions Crowned at 8th Annual Northstar Winter Classic

ALBANY, NY – Mass Elite ran the table as four new champions were crowned at the 8th annual Northstar Winter Classic.

“The Northstar Winter Classic served its purpose of delivering fast-paced and high-rep action for all”, said Event Director Ashley Gersuk Murphy. “All within very tight quarters.”

The weather was mildly on par for late January but it didn’t matter as 32 teams competed on the turf inside the bubble at Afrim’s Sports Park. The event kicked off with the 2028-29 and 2024-2027 divisions in the morning window, and 2024-26 Gold and 2024-26 Silver closed out the day in the afternoon. Teams traveled from Western NY and Massachusetts to complement a great assortment of local talent. 

Thank you to all of the participants, family members, and fans who made it another memorable day. The competition level was high, and the sportsmanship and camaraderie matched, as it should.

Below is a rundown of each divisional champion at the 2024 Northstar Winter Classic:

14U 2028-2029: Mass Elite Gold
2024-2027 Bronze: Mass Elite Green
2024-2026 Silver: Mass Elite Blue
2024-2026 Gold: Mass Elite Red
