The first step on that journey, the sectional tournament, is this weekend, held in Granville, Ohio. During the spring season thus far the women's team has been playing very well, with their only loss coming to a strong University of Notre Dame team in sloppy conditions at the Philly Classic in early March. Right now, the women are ranked 23rd by the UPA and are the top seed going into the weekend.
The men's team is also playing well, and has a large group of returning players on the team this year. "We have a lot of guys dedicated to making the regional tournament," said senior Kevin Pochatila. "We had some good wins down in Georgia earlier in the season and have set higher expectations than our finish last year."
In the men's division, there are 26 teams entered to compete with the top five advancing to the regional tournament, while the women's division only has 14 teams entered, with the top six teams advancing to the regional tournament.
You can check both the men's and women's teams progress over the weekend on upa.org or check out the club's website, ultimate.cas.edu, to get more information about the teams.
