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.

Update: a historic series of upsets kept pre-tournament favorites NC State, UNC-W and Virginia Tech all from qualifying for men’s Nationals, leaving spots for Georgetown, William and Mary, and Maryland in Milwaukee.

On the positive side, the NC State women’s team qualified for the first time in 12-years! Congratulations to Jäga!

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.

Update: the NC State men’s ultimate club team won its pool at Easterns going 3-1 on Saturday, including an upset over the University of Massachusetts. State lost in the quarter-finals to Auburn but finished the tournament with a good enough record to finish #15 in the country and helped secure one of 4-bids to the 2018 College Championships for the Atlantic Coast Region.

The women won the tournament with a perfect 7-0 record, giving the Atlantic Coast a second bid on the women’s side!
