      Freakin Weston – Pikes Peak

The Wild are undefeated in the North conference in 2021. The Brigade has won the conference from 2017-2019. This match is bound to be a dogfight.

In a preview, these teams played each other in their last match of the regular season. The Wild took the win but Brigade had a few key mistakes including a roster violation that cost them the difference in the match.

The Wild are known for their depth in strength including their closer Blake Kidder and pro strong woman Julie Rader. Both teams have won every Ladder race this season… with the exception of the match they played against each other where the Brigade took the W.

On the bodyweight side, the Wild have won more Jack and Jill races even though the Brigade appear to be deeper in bodyweight talent with ex gymnasts like Roderick Holloway and Marissa Oxenford.

Whoever wins this Conference Final will be playing later that day in the Championship match. Will it be 3x North Conference Champions the Tampa Bay Brigade, or will it be the strong and scrappy Gainesville Wild? Watch on Oct 9th.
