GA/SC All-Section Team

After talking to a couple captains from the Section we’ve come out with an All-Section team. Keep in mind, this is limited to the response we got from captains and their responses were limited to the teams that they played or watched over the course of the weekend. Here’s what we’ve got though.

1. Ben Slade – Clemson

2. Eric “EO” Olivier – Charleston

3. Sam Gainer – Emory

4. Taylor “Tree” Goforth – Kennesaw State

5. Trevor Conrad – SCAD

6. Charlie Herrig – UGA

7. Will Carmichael – USC

Honorable Mention: Dan Jones – Georgia Southern

Suffice it to say, that’s a tough line to match up on.

Congratulations to those who made the inaugural Monup All-Section team. Feel free to put this honor on your resumes and list us as a reference. Congratulations and we look forward to seeing more of the same kind of play from those of you who moved on to Regionals.

If you haven’t visited PickupUltimate.com yet then you should make your way over there as soon as possible and either check out the games available in your area or add games that you are a part of to the list.

We are impressed with the efforts of those who run the site to continue the growth of Ultimate. Now that we have been playing competitve ultimate for a year we find that some pickup games can be frustrating. However, it is important to remember that, almost no matter who you are, the first time you played Ultimate it was in a completely unorganized and completely non-competitive pickup game.

Although watching or playing Ultimate at its highest level can be exciting, gratifying and flat out addicting it’s important to remember that the weekend warriors, the people who play the game in their spare time and for no other reason than just for the sake of competing are the people that keep this sport growing.

All-Section team should be up later this afternoon. We are also planning on getting started in previewing AC Regionals with similar team by team profiles just like we did for Sectionals. Although it won’t be our focus, we also plan on profiling as many women’s teams as we can in preparation for Women’s AC Regionals which will be in the same place at the same time as the Open Regionals. So keep an eye out for those.
