Chicago Invite - Naperville Polo Fields
Things to Note:
Overall it was a successful weekend. Our cutters' dumps to the handlers were lacking (in quantity and quality), but the cuts were good. One thing that everybody should work on is poise/confidence with the disc. It is important to hold the disc with a forehand grip while faking on the forehand side. I've seen too many fakes to that side with a backhand grip.
Also, when pivoting, keep control of your body weight (balance). This allows you to keep your head up and see what your target/handler is doing moments before your throw.
Solid tournament High,
-Coach Dan Block
Seeded 23rd out of 48th. Finished tied for 11th. Not bad.
Illinois St (10): W 12-10
Western Michigan (7): W 9-6
RHIT (39): W 13-12
On universe point, Dr. Block layed out to catch an uncatchable throw from senior captian Jonathon Bussey in the endzone.
Eastern Michigan (26): W 13-6
Nate Ebnet saw images of his lady friend every time he saw the disc and layed his body on the line to catch every disc...for her ;)... or else it was the 15-hour energy.
Nate, way to be everywhere that game.
Team - We need to pick it up so Nate isn't exhausted when he lays out. Offensive layouts are tough to complete when you're tired.
Drew- I believe you got the winning point this game after dropping a coule in the middle of the game. Way to catch it when it counts. Try to make every catch seem that important.
Niles North (42): W 13-7
Hopkins (34): L 8-15
Up 3-1 =====> self destruct
A single break to start off any point allowed them to work it up the field on us with solid flow. We broke down mentally as a team and lost because of this. However, we learned from it and came back stronger than ever in the following game. Well done team.
Wisconsin Steven's Point(11): W 15-12
These guys were athletic. They had a huge guy who was smart on D and could throw to any spot on the field. However, we played better as a TEAM and that's what counts. I believe it was 12-8 or something and we went on a good run at the end to win.
Michigan B (14): L 8-15
Our all-star handler, Dan Couillard (#84), threw an amazing high-release backhand over the cup to start the first point when instantly the wind picked up and blew the disc straight into the hands of a Michigan player for a Callahan.
