Elon's Women's Club Ultimate Team heads to Nationals
Elon’s women’s club ultimate team will travel to Westerville, Ohio, after a great performance at the regionals April 12-13, at St. Mary’s College in Maryland.
The tournament was a huge success, with the team winning six games out of seven.
The team played against Richmond on April 12 and won 14-6 for a strong start to the weekend. The next game against Catholic was another success with a final score of 15-4. The last game was against Mary Washington, a team Elon had played before at nationals. Elon was able to keep ahead of them and pull through with a final winning score of 11-8.
On April 13, Elon started with a tough loss against Davidson, losing by 5. However, the day quickly turned around for the team as they ended the day with two strong wins against University of North Carolina at Asheville and Mary Washington, and, thanks to players Kerianne Durkin, Sydney Harris and Maureen Dougherty, a celebratory win against Davidson.
This final victory secured the team a spot at DIII nationals in Westerville, Ohio, in May, making it the third appearance for Elon women’s ultimate at the national level.
