Rookies shine for Regiment in Boston

It was a tournament of firsts for Regiment: first tournament of the year, first appearance at the Boston Invite and for six players, their first outing with the team.

The province’s competitive open club team was seeded 10th of 26 teams going into the tournament held June 22-23.

On day one, Regiment went 1-2 to hold seed after pool play, setting up the crossover against third-seeded Big Wrench out of Boston. Big Wrench edged out Regiment by two points for a final score of 8-6.

Day 1 results:

  • Regiment vs. Sprout (2) (Boston): 6-15
  • Regiment vs. Shade (7) (New York): 5-15
  • Regiment vs. Red Tide (15) (Maine): 12-11
  • Regiment vs. Big Wrench (3) (Boston): 6-8

The first day results put Regiment in the bracket for ninth to twentieth place, where they again finished with one win and three losses for a final finish of 16th place.

Day 2 results:

  • Regiment vs. SGC (12) (Quebec): 13-15
  • Regiment vs. Shrike (18) (Ottawa): 15-11
  • Regiment vs. Log Jam (21) (New York): 6-15
  • Regiment vs. BAG (20) (Massachusetts): 6-11

Of the six rookies on the Regiment roster, two were former Storm members and three were playing in the high school circuit just one year ago. The rookies were: Cameron Penny, Andrew Workman, Jordan Kavanagh, Jonathon Taylor, Nick Mitchell and Michael Walsh.

“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.

Annual charity game aids local food aid non-profit

Nick House, president of Ultimate NL and MAUL (right), poses with Jody Williams, manager of Bridges to Hope, and donations from the annual MAUL/SWURL charity game.

The fourth annual MAUL/SWURL holiday charity game raised $800 and over 400 non-perishable food items for Bridges to Hope.

The St. John’s-based non-profit organization offers several programs aimed at providing food aid assistance to citizens in the Northeast Avalon region. These include a food pantry, community kitchen and community outreach and education.

“This game is a highlight for many players in our leagues,” says Melissa Wheeler, SWURL president. “It’s a great opportunity for our players, as well as players that have returned home for the holidays, to get together and play a game for fun with the intent of giving back to the community. SWURL and MAUL provide the field space free of charge for any players that want to play in our charity games with the caveat that players bring cash or non-perishable food items that we can then bring to Bridges to Hope.”

“Being able to provide such a substantial donation each year is something that our leagues are very proud of, and our players continually impress us with their festive spirit and their generosity for those in need,” she adds.

Participants in the annual MAUL/SWURL holiday charity game.

Forty players from the Men’s Avalon Ultimate League and St. John’s Women’s Ultimate Recreational League took part in the annual tradition, which sees the two leagues challenge each other to raise the most donations from its players. MAUL narrowly won the challenge for the fourth year in a row.

“It’s heartwarming to see generosity of our members at this time of year, just one more example of what makes our community special,” says Nick House, president of MAUL. “We are grateful for their contribution to an important cause.”

The charity game was held on Dec. 20.
