Bank Run: Season’s First Tournnament

The NC State men’s ultimate team competed at its first tournament of the year at Bank Run over the 9/16-9/17 weekend.  Held in Charlotte, NC, the team split into X & Y teams and played against teams from Duke, UNC-C, Elon, App State and others.

Update: NC State lost in the Finals to a combo team of current UNC-C players and alumni. Both the X & Y teams had successful weekends with new players getting lots of playing time.

Ruckus Ultimate Frisbee Pickup!

Update: we had over 150 people come out and play at Ruckus! Thanks to everyone that attended. We’ll have more ultimate activities throughout the year and look forward to seeing you again!

Come on out and meet your new classmates! If you’re a freshman, or new to State, or love ultimate, come on out on Thursday and Friday and join one of a half dozen ultimate games being played on Miller Field at NC State.

We’ll randomly select teams at 6:30pm. Bring friends (it’s COED!), a light and dark shirt, and sneakers or soccer cleats. Games will run from 6:30 to 8:30pm and then we’ll serve the best pizza in Raleigh: Ruckus! No worries if you’re late — come anytime, we’ll quickly assign you to a team.

Everyone gets discount coupons to Ruckus, and we’ll have prizes for the winning team and a series of individual games. Gift certificates, frisbees, and more.

See you Thursday and Friday evening!

 

IHOP Frisbee Olympics!

August 14, 2017 by NCSU PR | 0 comments

UPDATE:  The rain held off. It was a ton of fun — thanks for coming out and playing. Enjoy your pancakes!

Celebrate the new semester with the NC State ultimate clubs and IHOP.  Win a free IHOP breakfast and NC State frisbees while meeting classmates and the players from the NC State men’s and women’s ultimate teams.

To enter the IHOP Frisbee Olympics, round up a 4-person team of your freshmen classmates. Each team is coed and must be 2-men and 2-women. The games are fun, short and involve a frisbee. After each 30-minute round prizes will be given out for the Gold, Silver and Bronze teams. The games are on Thursday, August 17th, with rounds at 6:00, 6:45 and 7:30pm. Your team can enter any round, with each round limited to 20 total teams.

Teams compete in 4 events of hand-eye coordination:

Ladder – throw and catch a frisbee 5-yards in a line to your teammates.

Relay Race – 20-yard run, catch and tag.

Square – how long can your team throw the frisbee 5-yards without dropping it?

Catch – throw and catch the frisbee with 1 hand — last team to drop the disc wins.

For each event beat the stacked team made up of college ultimate players (the Rabbit) and your team earns a bonus point for that event!

The 4-man team (2-men and 2-women) that scores the most points wins the Gold Medal!

Round up your team (2-men and 2-women) and we’ll see you Thursday night!

AC Regional Championships

The NC State Ultimate Club enters the 16-team 2017 Atlantic Coast Regional tournament as the #3 seed.

The tournament is May 6th and 7th in Axton, VA at the Smith River Soccer Complex. This year’s top 5 seeds are: UNC, UNC-W, NC State, William and Mary and Virginia Tech.

NC State’s new, elevated, camera platform, JinxCam 2.0, will be at the tournament live streaming 3-6 State games on Saturday and Sunday. All games will be available at:

https://www.youtube.com/ncstateultimateclub

The JinxCam schedule for Saturday is:

10:30AM NCSU vs. Maryland
12:00PM NCSU vs. UNC-Charlotte
1:30PM NCSU vs. Virginia
3:30PM pool play crossover game: A2 v C3

A complete schedule can be found here.

The top 3 finishers at the Regional tournament will qualify for the 2017 USAU College Championships in Mason, OH over Memorial Day Weekend.

Update: After winning its pool on Saturday 3-0, State found itself 2-games away from Nationals. Starting Sunday morning a favored State team played Virginia Tech. After taking half 8-4, a combination of nerves and a furious VT comeback saw State lose the game 13-12.

But State could still win out and secure the 3rd bid to Nationals. An heroic effort by the players and coaches saw State overcome crushing disappointment to sweep JMU and then W&M to make the 3/4 game and the “backdoor” finals.  There they played old State nemesis UNC-W, where a tired, mentally fatigued, State suffered a heavy defeat.
