Wisconsin Takes Home Stanford Invite Crown

Wisconsin may have had a bit of a bumpy weekend in Tampa at Florida Warm Up back in February, but they erased doubts about their offense with a dominant performance at the Stanford Invite. Their 6-0 weekend came along with an average margin of victory of an astonishing 5.7 goals; their closest game was a two point win over Pittsburgh, 15-13, in the tournament final.

Craig Cox returned to the offense and provided some additional throwing oomph while the defense continued its strong play. Aaron Speiss was a standout cutter on the weekend.

Auburn Catches Fire To Win Tally Classic

Auburn, a team that looked disjointed just three weeks ago in Tampa, ripped off three extremely impressive wins on Sunday in Tallahassee to win the Tally Classic. They defeated UNC in quarters 12-11, Georgia Tech in semis 14-7, and #1 UNC Wilmington in the final 14-13.

Reigning Southeast Player of the Year Ryan Landry had a superb weekend and notched a pair of decisive handblocks on UNCW’s Xavier Maxstadt to seal an Auburn victory.

There are still questions about Auburn: they didn’t get a single break against Georgia in their pool play game on Saturday at Tally and lost 13-10 before their Sunday magic.

Missouri Starts Season Strong

#17 Missouri took to the field for the first time this spring at the Midwest Throwdown and came away with a clean 7-0 record. Their closest game was a 15-11 win over Kansas in the semifinals.

Looking Ahead

This Weekend: A quiet weekend on the calendar. Cornell is the top seed at the Atlantic City 6, Wisconsin-Milwaukee headlines Rip Tide, and Iowa gets the #1 seed at the Windy City Whammy.


Whitman Captures Stanford Invite, #1 Spot, But Title’s Up For Grabs

When Whitman started the Stanford Invite with their first loss of the season, falling to UCF 8-10, it could have been cause for confusion. Who knew by the end that loss would be a huge asset in helping them win the tournament and becoming the top ranked team in the country? Their rematch with Central Florida was clearly informed by their earlier meeting and now Whitman’s resume reads: 12-1 record, 6-1 against top 10 teams, and their only loss against #2 UCF, who they have a win over.

Kansas Scores Meaningful Midwest Throwdown Win

It was a nice weekend in St. Louis for Kansas Betty, who head home with eight more wins and a metaphorical trophy for the case. After a rough start at QCTU, Betty nabbed their first marquee win of the season, defeating #18 Wisconsin in the final.

Notre Dame Wins Second Straight Tally Classic

Tally Classic XI had a lot of similarities to Tally Classic X: Notre Dame came to Tallahassee and left the unblemished champion and host Florida State suffered a surprisingly semifinal setback against an in-region upstart. #15 Notre Dame won some close ones over FSU and Georgia Tech, clearly the top three teams in the field, but eventually notched a hard fought 12-10 victory over Tech in the final. Georgia Tech, in a banner year for the team, upset #23 Florida State in semifinals, and gave Notre Dame all they could handle.

Looking Ahead

This weekend: A bit of a quiet weekend between the typical March majors, but Mash-Up is the marquee in a 4-tournament weekend, where #16 Notre Dame plays a back to back with some solid squads like Florida and Harvard.
