The rainy Arizona morning did not stop over 100 doubles teams from competing and having fun at the event. The tournament ran smoothly with the help of team players and volunteers from Cortez Colt Buddies, the Cortez Badminton team, and the Kellis High School badminton team. The competition included unified doubles teams consisting of a Special Olympian and a Unified Partner. Match after match the determined Cortez team continued onward coming within three points of advancing to the AIA Unified Badminton state competition.
