Rocky Erickson Makes Team Introductions 

(Billings, MT) The 37th annual NAIA National Tournament kicked off last night with a welcome banquet where our own Rocky Erickson introduced all 32 teams competing in the tournament. Over 750 people were in attendance during the event.

Out of the teams competing at this years event there are seven teams that are looking to gain their first-ever championship victory including Rocky Mountain College. This is the first year the NAIA tournament has ever been held in Montana and also marks the first time since 1988 that Rocky Mountain College’s Battlin’ Bears have made an appearance at the event.

The event will be held at Metra Park and spans over seven days starting March 15th.
