Girls NIT Set for Portland, Maine
March 21, 2006 – The Girls High School National Invitational Tournament is set to be held June 3-4 in Portland, Maine.
Hosted by the Portland Super Sows, the tournament has never before been held on the East Coast, and the consensus among teams at last year’s event in Milwaukee was that an East Coast team should host.
The NIT games will be held at Deering High School in Portland, with opening events June 2 and games June 3 and 4.
Last year Divine Savior Holy Angels of Milwaukee won for the second year in a row.
Other previous winners include Luther Burbank of Sacramento in 2003, Kent of Kent, Wash. in 2002, and Colorado’s Fort Collins in 2000 and 2001.

And for the record, the name “Super Sows” amuses me. Rugby people are funny, aren’t we? I’m just imagining what team cheers must be like.
