Malcolm DeMille, Ascension and HNS Sports Group teamed up to create a trophy that sculpturally brings the tournament logo to life. The silver toned trophy incorporates the Gateway Arch and Mississippi River, reflective of the event’s host city, with the clear acrylic posts holding an epoxy filled Ascension logo in the center of the piece. The sculpture is set atop a satin black wood base and will make its debut at next year’s inaugural tournament in September.
