Weekend Update: Sectionals, Sectionals, Sectionals

This weekend marked the start of the USA Ultimate Club Series, the playoffs for club teams across the country. The journey to Sarasota begins locally at Sectionals, smaller tournaments that feed the top teams to Regionals in late September and early October. There teams will face off for the elusive bids to Nationals.

Here’s all the action from around the country this weekend. The teams with bids to Regionals are listed below in the order of their finish, along with any notable performances or upsets.
