BLAINE, MN. – The mixed division returned to the US Open after a brief hiatus due to COVID-19. Like always, the early August weather in Minnesota proved to be a driving factor in how the games turned out1 as teams were still learning their systems and making adjustments throughout the weekend.

AMP Wins Back and Forth Final

In a final where the lead shifted every few points, Philadelphia AMP emerged victorious, 14-12 over Madison NOISE in the end. The first few points of the game made things look like we were going to have a stalemate in the end. Both teams exchanged holds and not a turn was had. Then, AMP got a D on a NOISE deep shot and took the lead for the first time. However, it did not take long before the team from Madison got the break back to go on serve; they got another break to take the lead, thanks to a Callahan by Matt Grinde on an attempt to center the disc from the handlers.
