The weekend of the 5th and 6th was time for the indoor regionnal qualifiers for the student national championship for ultimate frisbee. Warwick sent three teams, the 1sts and 2nds were picked teams with a 3rds team that was entered to let people get some tournament experience.
The long and the short of it:
(out of 24 teams)
Bears 1 came 5th, booking themselves a place in the Not The Nationals secondary competition.
Bears 2 (the team I was on) came 11th, ending up the 2nd best 2nd team there, and beating a few first teams as well, overall quite happy with the position, though a close result with Oxford was annoying and probably would have resulted in us finishing 9th and winning the plate competition, but that's the way things turned out.
Bears 3 improved massively over the course of the weekend, we always knew it was going to be a tough learning experience for them, and it was but hopefully their players will have learned a lot and be more confident for future tournaments. Finally placing 20th.
Now if only I can catch up on the sleep I didn't get over the weekend (two 6am starts, long days and working saturday night at the union until 2.40, probably not a good idea, oh well.
