“Our newest team mates rose to the challenge of what must have been a difficult test for their first taste of club ultimate,” says co-captain Nick House. “Our goal was to give these players as much exposure as possible before nationals, and they handled it well.”
Regiment will next competes in August at the Canadian Ultimate Championships in Edmonton, AB.
