We know who won Nationals, but who won ultimate Twitter?

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.

Andrew Lewis is one of the contributors to the Ringer The AUDL blog.

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.

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.

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.

7Express had some real zingers this tournament.

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.

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.

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.


Charlie Hoppes is the coach of the AUDL’s New York Empire.

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.
