Bang! Bang! Bang! The Hammer Head chant could be herad throughout the Thomas and Mack Arena for the second half of the Las Vegas 2011 Regional. Team 1572 countinued to powerhouse through only losing one match out of all 11 and ended with a final ranking of Number 2. Going into the finals they teamed up with teams 359, The Hawaiian Kids and 2496 Tru Blu and made it all the way to compete in the finals. Overall the Hammer Heads placed 2nd in the competition, but did not fail to impress many of the judges as well as other teams showing that they have come a long way as a team and will be bringing the heat at next years competition.
