Summer Ultimate Update

With everyone (well most people) gone for the summer and playing in different cities for different teams, I’d like to give all of our viewers an update on where to catch all of your favorite players in action this summer. Here’s a brief description of all of the acronyms and abbreviations so I don’t have to spell it out every time.

Southern Hospitality (SoHo) – new club team out of Tuscaloosa featuring players from all over the gulf coast
Freaks uv Nature (Freaks) – club team out of the Huntsville/Madison area
Ironmen – club team out of Birmingham
Birmingham Ultimate Disc Association (BUDA) – Birmingham summer league
Huntsville Ultimate Summer League (HUSL)
Montgomery Ultimate Summer League (MUSL)
Atlanta Summer League (not sure what the acronym is but I’m calling it ATL)
Chattanooga Flying Disc Club (Nooga) – Summer league

TJ – BUDA, SoHo
Keith – Freaks, HUSL
Reid – HUSL
Ryan – SoHo, eventually…
Garris – SoHo, BUDA
Evan – SoHo, Disc Golf Extraordinare
Wes – SoHo, ATL
Trey – BUDA
Stewart – BUDA
West – ATL
Blake – BUDA
JC – ATL

Jose – Nooga, Ironmen
JP – HUSL
Ted – BUDA
Mono – Burnside (somewhere in Virginia)
Logan – BUDA

It’s great to see the majority of the roster making it a priority to get better over the summer. Not only are guys playing ultimate in these leagues and for these clubs, there are also plenty of guys doing supplementary work as well- running, throwing, and working out in their spare time. I want to encourage everyone to keep up the good work and always strive to get better at every aspect of their game. Also, I urge everyone to be good ambassadors of Auburn Ultimate and the entire ultimate community in general wherever you  go this summer.

Southeast Regional Tournament Recap

Auburn concluded its season last weekend (May 3rd and 4th) after playing in the Southeast Region tournament. The top three teams of the tournament earned a spot at USAU Collegiate Nationals. The tournament featured 3 top-20 teams, all from the Florida Section – UCF, Florida State, and Florida. Perennial powers Georgia and Georgia Tech were also in attendance. From the Gulf Coast Section Alabama, LSU, Tulane, Auburn, Mississippi State, and Vanderbilt competed as well.

Auburn came in to the tournament seeded 10th out of 13 teams, but was looking to improve that ranking by the end of the tournament. In Auburn’s pool was 3rd-seeded Florida, 4th-seeded Georgia, and 9th-seeded Tulane. Up first – Georgia.

Having been beaten by Georgia at Tally 15-6, Auburn was definitely looking for some revenge, and Auburn couldn’t have had a better start to the game. Several early breaks and strong offensive holds helped Auburn jump out to a commanding 5-2 lead, and later 7-3. Shout out to D-line players West Dickens, Blake Galloway and Garris Bugg for incredible first half performances. With half one point away, Georgia mustered up a couple breaks, but Auburn finished it off 8-6.

Halftime
Georgia, the very talented team they are, hit Auburn early with two breaks to tie the game  at 8, but solid O-line play got Auburn back on track. A couple breaks by the D-line helped Auburn jump back out with the lead. Back and forth play resumed, and Auburn broke for the game 13-11 for their first win over Georgia in… well… a long time I guess.

Gamewi

GameWinner

The highly emotional win, although exciting, did have negative effects for the rest of the day. There was a bit of a let down in the next game against a very good Florida team, and a lack of concentration and focus ended up costing Auburn a crucial game to Tulane. 1-2 in pool play sent Auburn into the lower bracket on Sunday. A loss to Miss St., a win against, Vandy, and a revenge win against against Tulane 17-16 in the cold and rain placed Auburn 9th in the tournament.

Stewart

Central Florida, Georgia, and Florida State advanced to Nationals. Their seasons continue, but sadly, the Gulf Coast’s season doesn’t. On behalf of the Auburn Ultimate club, we would like to say thanks to the players that will not be returning next year:

Brad Smith
Chad Hobson
Andrew Ruffing
Brandon “ER” Everson
Fred Bonsack
Danny Yates

Your contributions to this program are immeasurable. This program is definitely on the rise, and you all played key parts in making it that way. We have enjoyed getting to know you guys on and off the field. You are truly brothers to us all. Much love, and WDE84.

Thank you also to Robert Martin for the photos. More photos of the tournament action can be found here.
