Next Up: Atlantic Coast Regionals

Then NC State ultimate clubs travel to Axton, VA to play in the Atlantic Coast Regional tournament and a chance to qualify for the USA Ultimate College Championships in Milwaukee, WI. The regional tournament is April 28th and 29th.

For the guys, they’ll be playing in a 16 team tournament with 4-bids available to the National tournament. State will likely enter the tournament as the 4th seed and realistically they’ll be competing against UNC, UNC-W, William and Mary, Virginia Tech, UNC-Charlotte, Georgetown and Maryland for those 4 bids.

The schedule can be found here.

The women also enter a 16-team tournament, but they’ll be the #2 seed as they fight for one of 2-bids to the National Championship. Sunday, the JinxCam will be covering the semi-finals, finals and “backdoor” games of the women’s division.

NC Conference Championships

The NC Conference Championships will be the weekend of April 14-15th outside of Winston-Salem.

Considered one of the toughest conference tournaments in the country, this year’s tournament features #1 ranked UNC, #15 NC State, #17 UNC-W, along with a strong South Carolina team, Duke, UNC-Charlotte, and more.

The schedule can be found here.

Update: The men finished the tournament with a 5-3 record. They were upset in the first round by UNC-Charlotte, but quickly recovered and finished the day 4-1. They beat UNC-Charlotte the next day, but lost to UNC and UNC-W to finish the tournament 3rd. Their next tournament is the Atlantic Coast Regional tournament where they are likely to be the 4th seed out of 12 teams.

The women finished the tournament 5-1, and should enter Regionals as the 2nd seed behind UNC.

ACS: NC State vs. UVA Ultimate Clubs

NC State and the University Virginia played a doubleheader on March 16th at the Method Road Soccer Complex at NC State.

The men started off first at 6:00pm with #16 NC State taking on the UVA Night Train. State led throughout the game, with UVA staying within striking distance until the very end, with State winning 14-12 as time expired. Technical problems interfered with the broadcast, but the game can be watched here Youtube.

The NC State women’s club team, Jaga, played traditional Atlantic Coast regional powerhouse, UVA Hydra, in the nightcap starting at 7:45pm. Hydra, which has qualified for Nationals the last 7 years in a row, ran up against a rapidly improving State team ultimate team and found themselves on the losing end of a 15-8. That game, with its own set of technical difficulties, can be found here.

The Universe Point Play-Of-The-Night was won by NC State’s own #58 Rowan Jayne, a sophomore majoring in Chemistry.
