The 2018 MBA Region 1C Tournament was held held July 24, 26, 28-29, August 4-5 and 11-12 at Brennan Field in Hinckley. The teams include all ten teams from the Eastern Minny League. The top two teams from Region 1C advanced to the 2018 MBA Class C State Tournament. Because the Eastern Minny is the only league in the region, they decided to forego league playoffs and move all teams directly into regions.
Mora will be the first seed and Princeton the second seed representing the region at the Class 'C' state tournament.

The Mora Blue Devils play at 5pm on Sunday, August 26th at New Prague against the winner of the Faribault Lakers and the Stewartville-Racine Sharks. UPDATE: Faribault eliminated Stewartville-Racine 2-0 on Sunday, August 19th, so Mora will play Faribault.
