Elon's Men's Ultimate Travels to Myrtle Beach
Elon Ultimate traveled to Myrtle Beach March 21-23rd to take on their biggest tournament of spring.
Elon went into the weekend ranked seventh out of a strong field of twelve teams, where seven were ranked nationally in the top 25. Elon began their weekend with a 15-10 win in a showcase game on Friday night against defending national champions, and 4th ranked, Middlebury. This was the beginning for a strong weekend for Elon, we dropped only one game in pool play on Saturday to SUNY-Fredonia, but still managed to win the pool. Going into bracket play on Sunday, Elon ourselves matched up against Middlebury, and won another match against the defending champs. In the semis, Elon faced conference opponent Davidson, which we managed to win and move on to face Richmond in the finals. We won a close 15-12 game for the championship. With the victory at Easterns, Elon moved up to 5th place in the nation, and we are riding a lot of momentum going into the post-season in the coming weeks. Catch the Men’s Ultimate Club in action here at home this weekend April 12-13 for their conference tournament.
