The 2017 Northwest Challenge is filled to the brim with talented teams, enough so that I’m revisiting the 2016 NW Challenge infographic, this time with a whole helping of new teams.

Katie Raynolds took a break from Seattle ultimate to test out the Midwestern scene, but now she's back in the Northwest to investigate this "bubble" she keeps hearing about. She played for Northwestern Gungho, two seasons with Chicago Nemesis, and now plays for Seattle Underground. Katie serves as Ultiworld's Women's D1 College Editor, and is damn proud to cover women's ultimate. You can reach her by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on Twitter (@kraynolds90).
