The second annual HSNI has its first confirmed team!
November 1, 2017 by Charlie Eisenhood in News with 0 comments
Nathan Hale High School (Seattle, WA) boys varsity ultimate team has become the first team to accept a bid to the 2018 High School National Invite after going undefeated in the postseason, winning both the Seattle Public School league and the Washington State Championship. They also won the Seattle Invite and lost just two games in league play.
Seattle’s boys varsity teams — unlike the rest of the country — play their meaningful competition in the fall. Invites were sent to select teams after the conclusion of the season last week.
Most invites will go out in the spring. Beginning in February, Ultiworld will begin releasing biweekly high school top 25 power rankings for each division. Rankings will be based on performance during the season and compiled with a combination of Ultiworld editorial judgment and coaches’ input. During the season, invites will be sent out on a rolling basis based on a number of factors, including team performance and geographical/logistical considerations. In late April or early May, a final power ranking will be released; the top 16 teams in each division will be invited to compete at the National Invite.
