We spoke to Ben Dieter, the captain of Cash Crop (Raleigh), on Saturday at the Chesapeake Open. One of the cool things about the tournament was that it matched up some of the east coast’s top bubble teams — those teams that were contending for a spot to the 2011 Nationals on Sunday at Regionals, but didn’t make it.
Cash Crop finished fifth at Regionals last year, losing a heartbreaker in the final game-to-go to Nationals against Southpaw (Philadelphia), a team they had beaten earlier in the day.
Cash Crop helped their chances for another shot at Nationals this season by winning the Chesapeake Open and earning a coveted bid to the Chesapeake Invite later this month. We spoke to Dieter about the 2012 rule changes, their plans to earn strength bids for the Southeast region, and more.
