Dilworth to host the Minnesota D-2 Legion tournament

Dilworth, Minn. (WDAY Sports) - State Legion tourneys are going on all over North Dakota and Minnesota and we'll have one in our backyard this weekend.

The Minnesota Division 2 tourney gets underway tomorrow in Dilworth and DGF is in the field as the hosts. The D-2 tourney has been around for 20 years and Bob Marshall Field now gets the state spotlight shone on it.

“There are only a handful of teams that really bid on it each year and they look at three or four teams. We picked a year where there wasn't as much competition and since it hasn't been held up in this neck of the woods they took a look at our field and what we can offer and they awarded it to us. One thing we have in DGF is a lot of support. There are a lot of committees that have been a part of putting this together. All the planning is really done. Now this week we actually do things and get ready.”
