Update: Here is a more comprehensive report of the championship game.
Middlebury’s men’s ultimate team, the Pranksters, won the D-3 National Championships today in Milwaukee, WI beating the University of Puget Sound in a 12-11 nail-biter.
This is the first appearance for the Pranksters in the national championships since 2010, when both the Pranksters and the Lady Pranksters (the women’s team) made an appearance at the D-1 National Championships. At the beginning of this year, the men’s team chose to compete in D-3 (the women’s team still plays D-1) with the team goal of winning the D-3 Championships (which they did, yay!). The team was seeded 10th, so it was an uphill battle all the same.
