There were men’s, women’s and youth (U-19) basketball events, men’s, women’s and co-ed volleyball as well as table tennis tournaments. All results are already published in our official website www.launa.org, the most significant outcome to be mentioned would be an extraordinary success of a Toronto based Lithuanian “Vytis” sports club, representatives of which won all of the three different championships they have participated in: the showpiece men’s “A” basketball, also men’s “B” and women’s basketball. Also worth mentioning is a special prize from one of our major sponsors, Lithuanian Foundation, which gives out a 1,000 USD financial support to the most successful U.S. Lithuanian basketball team in this tourney – the money gets awarded to its city or state Lithuanian language school. This time $1,000 was picked up by the third place winners in the men’s “A” basketball championship Los Angeles “Banga” squad who decided to pass the prize onto its Lithuanian language school named after St. Casimir and based in the LA Lithuanian parish, bearing the same name.
