D-I Men’s Discussion

  • Florida entered the rankings for this first time this season at #17, following a three-win weekend at Carolina Kickoff. They played tight in their loss to UNC Wilmington, led by Billy O’Bryan’s aggressive playmaking abilities and a strong supporting cast.
  • #19 NC State had a middling performance commensurate with their rank and only moved down a spot to make room for an impressive Florida team that beat them head to head, 12-11.
  • Speaking of UNC Wilmington, they dropped one spot in the rankings to #9. News that sophomore Matt Ellis would not be with the team combined with bouts of ineffective play – even though they won all of their games at Carolina Kickoff1- to knock their foundation a little.
  • Central Florida exited the top 25 after registering just a single win at Carolina Kickoff. Included in their four losses was an unsightly L against D-III Carleton GoP. The team suffered without powerful thrower Adam Vinson.

D-I Women’s Discussion

  • The new #5, Oregon gained two spots, entering the top 5 after playing very close with #2 British Columbia at Bellingham Invite. It was also worthy of note to see Hayley Wahlroos back for a 5th year, and the former All Star Ultimate Tour member is worth a significant boost to expectations for Fugue.
  • Both Washington and Whitman moved up as a pair, going up two spots to #16 and #17, respectively, following their performances at Bellingham. Seeing them first hand gave a strong impression of their overall outlook for the regular season.

D-III Men’s Discussion

  • #1 Air Force knocked off D-I opposition — Oregon State — en route to a perfect record at their opening tournament of 2018. Already at the top spot, they have nowhere higher to go.
  • Despite their surprise win over Central Florida and playing new D-I #17 Florida close, Carleton GoP‘s other results were uneven and they were absolutely smacked by Penn State. It was enough for them to simply hold tight at #8 this week.
  • Puget Sound‘s solid win over Lewis & Clark at the Flat Tail Open, paired with a one point loss to Oregon State and win over Nevada-Reno, was enough to launch them into this week’s rankings at #20. They replace L&C, who fall out of the Top 25.

D-III Women’s Discussion

  • With no ranked teams in action yet in 2018, there remain no changes to the Women’s D-III Top 25 this week.
