Weekend Update: Regionals Are Set

The logo for the USA Ultimate 2012 Club Championship Series.This weekend marked the final wave of Sectionals tournaments, as teams earned the last of the bids to Regionals, which kick off on Saturday.

Throughout the week, we will feature Regionals previews in each division as we look ahead to the most competitive tournaments and the biggest upset possibilities.

But first, here’s what happened this weekend:

Northeast Region

East New England

IronsideBrute Squad
GarudaThe Collective
Red TideVice
Red CircusBruins
Jerk FactorySwagger

Notable Performances: Cambridge’s Garuda played tough against Boston’s Ironside, the USA Ultimate #1 ranked team in the country, losing by only three points. They could play spoiler to Toronto’s GOAT or New York’s Pony, snatching away the third bid to Nationals. Nobody has been talking about this team because their lack of recent results. They had a shot to play at the Chesapeake Invite and test themselves against top squads, but lost a close game to Raleigh’s Cash Crop in the finals of the Chesapeake Open, failing to earn the bid. They are a dark horse — don’t be surprised if they’re challenging teams deep into Sunday at Regionals.

Southwest Region

Nor Cal

Polar Bears
American BBQ
BW Ultimate
CapitOl Punishment
Oakland Shipping Co
The Greater Good

So Cal

On The RocksSafari
7 FiguresViva
Call Me MaybeVenom
Del SolThe Cub Club

Notable Performances: American BBQ avenged their Labor Day finals loss to San Francisco’s Mischief with a 14-12 win in the 2nd place game. It may have an effect on seeding at Nationals. The Nor Cal section featured all five teams that earned bids for the Southwest to Nationals, making it a good preview of the more important Regionals battle.
