For those who have not been to Nationals in person, there are few events in our community that can match the camaraderie and celebration seen at the College Championships. For everyone following along at home, there is only so much that can be seen on the Ultiworld livestreams, and many viewers supplement their Nationals-following experience with a scroll through Twitter.
But don’t worry if you aren’t on the bird app or missed some of the action yesterday. After compiling highlights at the Club Championships last fall, we’re back to roundup of some of the best tweets we saw during Day 3 from Milwaukee.
Brown took down Minnesota in Sunday morning’s quarterfinal. They had previously lost to Grey Duck in their first game of the year at the unsanctioned Florida Warm Up tournament.
Kevin Pignone is a D-line handler for UNC who was savagely skied by 2021 Player of the Year Hayden Austin-Knab in their quarterfinal matchup.
Mags Colvett is one of the go-to sources on Twitter for insight on ultimate media. They seemed to manage to find a way to watch ESPN’s coverage of the D-I College Championships, somehow, someway.
Jimmy Mickle is a former college champion and Callahan Award winner with Colorado Mamabird. He is very kind in sharing some personal messages of encouragement from his mom and Team USA teammate Dylan Freechild.
Manny Eckert’s Washington Sundodgers, a preseason sleeper pick to go deep into the bracket, finished in the top twelve at nationals. The team entered the tournament seeded 14th, but upset NC State to make the championship bracket.
Chris McGlynn is an Ultiworld contributor and the brother of Pittsburgh En Sabah Nur’s Will McGlynn. He did not make it to Wisconsin to watch Pittsburgh A play in the national semifinal.
Alex Davis is still the fastest ultimate player.
A rare double appearance on this list, Mags does an artistic job recreating the acoustic experience of both the men’s and women’s Callahan Award ceremonies which were beset by small technical difficulties in the public address system at unfortunate times.
