We were unable to talk to any captains or coaches after play on Sunday. We were on the field when Georgia and Emory finished playing and didn’t get to see many of the other games in action so take this recap as mostly our opinion.
The day began with Jojah matched up with Charleston and Emory matched up with cross-town rival Georgia Tech in the championship bracket.
Today was more or less the perfect day for an tournament. While, in our opinion, wind severly detracts from the fun that is had while playing it does add an element to play that is not present with still air.
There were no large upsets to mention, the teams that were expected to go undefeated (Georgia, Emory and Georgia Tech) did so and did so with ease. Possibly the most hotly contested pool was the D pool, where Charleston upset South Carolina on universe point to steal the No. 4 seed going into Sunday. Not only that, but we found that SCAD was the most underrated team in the field. Buz gave Charleston all they wanted and a little bit more before playing with South Carolina for the entire first half.
As it turns out, it is much harder to cover an ultimate tournament that one is actually playing in. We managed to speak with the captains from every No. 1 and No. 2 seed in all four pools except for a representative of Kennesaw State and Clemson. We will touch on all six of those team’s performances and post some photos below.
