Harvest Moon Preview

The crowds may be coming into Fayetteville, Arkansas this weekend to see the much hyped football game between the Arkansas Razorbacks and the South Carolina Gamecocks. But one of the older ultimate tournaments, Harvest Moon, will be drawing its fair share of spectators too.

Harvest Moon, which is entering its 21st edition, has traditionally been a good tournament to figure out where Ozark Section, and now Ozark Conference teams stand. This year should continue that tradition as seven Ozark Conference teams will be there. Central Arkansas, Missouri, Missouri State, Oklahoma State,  St. Louis and Washington will make the trip to Fayetteville along with host Arkansas.

It will be interesting to see how teams match up, especially since Arkansas has kept all of its playmakers — including All-Section and All-Region player Matt Jackson, where as everyone else has graduated at least one major player.

Other teams of note include former Ozark Section teams Harding, Missouri S&T, and Truman State who all finished in the top 7 at Div. III Nationals last year.
