EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- The little bit of rain Sunday morning didn't bother players too much as the final day for the U.S. National Kubb Championship wrapped up.

The top 16 Kubb teams returned to Eau Claire Soccer Park to battle it out Sunday. Organizers say this has been the largest year with 128 teams. Players from all around the nation made the trip, however no one came a different country this year.

"We'll have to look it over and see if we'll want to expand a little bit, but I think we'll stay at 128 teams now at least for the next year just to make sure if there’s anything we need to add or make better, we can do that,” Eric Anderson, the Director of U.S. National Kubb Championships, said.

Two of the top four teams were all from Eau Claire. Registration for next year will begin April 1st.

This year's winners include:

1st Place: Team Damaged Incorporated - Gregg Jochimsen, Grant Scott and Darren Finger

2nd Place: Team Kubb United - Josh Feathers, Chris Hodges and Dave Giese

3rd Place: Team Ringers - Dave Ellringer, Aaron Ellringer and Sy Ellringer

4th Place: Team The Kubbing Projekt - Brian Evans, Bridget Long, Andy Long and Drew Strait
