We’ve got full results, scoring breakdowns, and video of the winners from the 2015 Southeast Classic YoYo Championship!
The Southeast Classic is the new NYYL seeding event for the Southeast Region, covering North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. Previously known as “South East Regionals” and held in Tallahassee, Florida, the new event is being coordinated by Matthew Wright, and is a definite “level up” for the contest. Plenty of players from all over the region showed up and brought their best to the stage, and it looks like this fresh contest could be a reinvigoration for the long-stagnant Southeast yoyo scene. The players definitely seem happy with the new event, and time will tell if this is the push that the Southeast needed. On to the results!
