UWA – North Little Rock, AR
Thirteen teams from the South Region will be competing this weekend, February 11-12, at the Hendrix Ultimate Experience in North Little Rock. Ten of those teams are from the Ozark Section.
The Hendrix Ultimate Experience, which was previously known as the Zach Show (pronounced Shaow), is in its fourth year. As in years past, this will be the first tournament of the spring season for a majority of the teams. Spectators should be prepared for some early season jitters, mistakes, and miscues.
Missouri State won in 2005 and Oklahoma won in 2004. Harding has finished in second place the last two years.
Games begin at 9 am on Saturday at Burns Park.

The site and date for the 2006 UPA South College Region was announced today. According to Regional Coordinator Mike Houston, the tournament will be held in Valley Park Soccer Complex near Tulsa, Oklahoma on April 29-30.
Sixteen teams from the Ozark, Texas, and Bama sections will compete for at least two bids to the 2006 UPA National Collegiate Championship in May. This is the first year since the 1999 Regional Redrawing that the South has held more than one bid. Previous South Regional tournaments have been held in Dallas, Texas and Little Rock, Arkansas.
The Valley Park Soccer Complex fields were most recently used for the 2005 Summer Solstice Tournament and 2005 West Plains Club Sectionals.
