For those familiar with the Carpenter Cup:
"Jersey Shore had to withdraw from the 2021 Carpenter Cup based upon the number of players unavailable due to state tournaments. "
Is it just me or is this a mile high pile of steaming dung?
There's like 40+ teams in the Shore Conference and most have been eliminated from the State Tournament.
Why don't you just say what you mean: The 5 players we really wanted aren't available and we're too lazy to have it for any kids who are not that top five.
