Ultiworld’s coverage of the 2022 Club National Championships is presented by Spin Ultimate; all opinions are those of the author(s). Find out how Spin can get you, and your team, looking your best this season.
While plenty of fans gathered at Mira Mesa stadium to watch the semifinals and finals live (and a handful more managed to find their ex-roommate’s cousin’s ESPN login), the rest of the ultimate community connected over Twitter to experience the closing moments of the club season together. Here are some standout Tweets from the weekend at Club Nationals.
I hope the washed up coaches who cut Andrew Roy from the baseball team in 8th grade know about his championship game on ESPN tomorrow

Today, M1 practice player Donna Johnston takes the field in the club national Mixed Division semifinals with @NOISEUltimate. In the Mens Division, legendary M2 practice player Cole Jurek leads @TruckStopUlti through a daunting semifinal matchup. It’s a historic day for Mallard!

While there has been plenty of attention drawn to former Minneapolis Sub Zero players finding success on other teams after they move away, Minneapolis Mallard and Mallard II are entering similar territory.
Ok so now that their season is done, I want to talk about @vaultultimate for a minute. We’ve all been enjoying their twitter presence and play this weekend, but as great as both of those things are (and as much recognition as they’re getting), we’re still underappreciating them.

The end of the club season is a time for reflection all around. For those who haven’t seen it yet, this thread about first-time Nationals qualifier Virginia Vault is incredibly wholesome.
It’s a Drost world we’re all just living in it.

Sol Yanuck is a Carleton alum and was likely speaking about the Drost brothers’ impressive plays for New York XIST.

7Express is a now-defunct New York mixed team. We’ll see if Yanuck’s interpretation of the Drost’s world makes its way to Colombia.
I haven’t played club in a few years but it’s really interesting to see how now whenever you turn it over you just say foul. It seems we never thought of that

7Express had some real zingers this tournament.
feel free to fact check, but i think there are two cmu alumni in club finals this year and zero pitt alumni. really makes you think.

As far as we can tell, this is correct and clearly ranks Carnegie Mellon University as the program recruits should turn their eyes to in the Steel City.
We didn’t get the memo for Colorado in the finals this year 🥴
— shame. ultimate (@ultimate_shame) October 23, 2022
Denver Molly Brown and Denver Johnny Bravo won their respective championships in the women’s and men’s divisions. Fort Collins shame. unfortunately missed the memo on the mixed side. No word from Denver Love Tractor if they got the memo as well.
Feeling really emotional for Fury. It is so inspiring to see @flipsideulti ‘s feeder-team excel on their own.

Another tweets article, another LB tweet. [insert joke about chalk in the women’s division here].

Robyn Fennig, the mixed division assist leader, powered Madison NOISE (which stands for No One Is Safe Ever) to the mixed final with two universe point assists, one in the quarterfinal against Seattle BFG and another in the semifinal against Minneapolis Drag’n Thrust.
I don’t say it enough, but @wi_statebird is a fucking icon. she didn’t know it was universe when she dropped a dime to win it, then wore these shades to the interview. incredible player, incredible human. pic.twitter.com/wo9DUlltZh

While we’re on the topic of Robyn Fennig in press conferences, her teammate Caitlin Murphy made creative use of the national runner-up trophy during Ultiworld’s postgame press conference.

One last NOISE moment. The team made this sound and Amanda Borders added the video. It just speaks for itself

To any new players out there: just remember that hustle wins you (at least silver) medals.

Kelly Johnson won a national championship with Seattle Mixtape and took this iconic photo.

Markham Shofner plays for San Francisco Revolver. Ultiphotos does a great job, but this quick snap encapsulated a lot of feelings as the club season comes to a close.
