Dear every Nationals qualifying team that isn’t Wisconsin, here is your scouting report on the number two overall seed. Dear Hodags, since this is the only scouting report video out there, hope you have some serious tricks up your sleeves!
In 2011, Sophie Herscu was a Callahan finalist. In 2013, she is part of Rabble Dance Collective’s new UPrise program attempting to emphasize the importance community. Check out the Kickstarter page, or at the Black Box Theatre in Boulder, CO.
In an effort to continue to grace ESPN’s Top Ten list, today’s dumps conclude with this amazing, last-second, slip-n-slide grab from Seattle Rainmakers’ Phil Murray. Be sure to tweet #SCTop10 to vote:
Keenan Plew has been doing amazing stuff like this for the Indy AlleyCats for two years running (pun intended). When Brodie thinks you should be number one on SportsCenter, it’s got to be good.
Seriously thought provoking stuff coming from Ultiworld this week. This article from Charlie Eisenhood questions those on the inside if two professional leagues can coexist. It didn’t work out for football. Nor basketball. Can it really work for ultimate?
Next, let’s switch back over to the MLU. Get yourself ready for the holiday weekend with this great Nighthawks preview and highlight vid. Oh, you’ve been ready for Memorial Day weekend since President’s Day? Yea, us too…
Callahan voting closes tomorrow (May 23) so be sure to get your last minute votes in. Or your last-minute nomination videos like this one. Positivity. Leadership. Dedication. Spirit. Ladies and gentlemen, Leah Tsinajinnie.
Still can’t get enough MLU? That was a rhetorical question. You can never get enough MLU! How about some Whitecaps highlights to keep you going? Again, rhetorical. Malecek to Clark for a huge huck and score:
Miss out on the action in Milwaukee? No worries, we’ve got you covered. Check out full game coverage of the DIII Women’s Championships, courtesy of Ultiworld.
Though the spotlight was on Milwaukee this weekend, 2013 USAU High School State Championships were also taking place. Here’s a photo gallery of some of the highlights, from USAU’s Facebook page.
Finally, we’ve got some awesome MLU highlights for you. Check out Michael Panna of the Spinners grab a Callahan against the Whitecaps, the Rumble’s Lucas Murphy’s huge layout goal, or Seattle Rainmakers’ Sean Sears get absolutely airborn for a defensive bid (foul called).
With all this top-level ultimate all around us–DIII Champs finishing, Madison on the horizon, MLU and AUDL hitting the apex of their seasons–maybe it’s time for a reality check. Here’s a Not Top 10 caliber video of the Push Pass Productions-proclaimed “worst pull ever”:
Let’s start with some international highlights this week, shall we? Over 200 high-flying, action-packed pics from the Super 8 Tournament in Medellin, Colombia last weekend.
Don’t you just love seeing ultimate get legitimate national coverage? Here’s the latest from the May edition Women’s Health magazine featuring a short mention of ultimate fitness guru Melissa Witmer’s company, Ultimate Results.
The University of Puget Sound Postmen certainly had an exciting weekend, coming just one double-game-point shy of a D-III championship. Congrats to Middlebury, btw, but the most exciting moment of the weekend still belongs to UPS.
The Bowdoin College women just completed the perfect season, going 30-0 on their way to the D-III National Championship. Check out the conclusion to this history-making run against Williams College:
