Columbia Finishes Season 9th in the Metro East April 30, 2013

Uptown Local traveled to Princeton this weekend to compete in Metro East Regionals. After a 12-13 loss in a grueling barn burner with NYU, UpLo battled injuries and a well-rested SUNY-Albany team in the pre-quarterfinal round. Unfortunately, the Boys in Blue were eliminated in an upset surprising enough to be mentioned in MLU commentary.

Sunday, a rested UpLo reasserted themselves as a dominant team, commandingly taking ninth with a 15-2 victory over SUNY-Buffalo and a 15-0 beatdown of SUNY-Stony Brook.

Senior Greg Somerville Makes Empire April 18, 2013

Though there has been no official announcement, UpLo senior Greg Somerville will be taking the field with NY Empire in their home opener this Saturday. He will join alumnus and former teammate Izzy Bryant ('11) as they look to earn their first win against the Rochester Dragons. Remember, the game is at 7:00 on Randall's Island and you should be there.

UpLo Alumni Begin Pro Seasons April 16, 2013

This weekend, New York City's newest profession sports teams begin their inaugural seasons. Both new Ultiamte teams have Columbia alumni on their rosters.

Saturday at 7, Izzy Bryant ('11) captains the AUDL's New York Empire in their home opener against the Rochester Dragons. The game is at Randall's Island Field 10. If you're interested in going, take the M35 bus from from the corner of 125th and Lexington.

Meanwhile, former UpLo captain Milo Snyder ('11) and the New York Rumble travel to Boson to take on the Whitecaps in the first-ever Major League Ultimate season.

UpLo Takes 3rd at Metro NY Conference Championship April 14, 2013

Columbia Ultimate on Ultiworld April 4, 2013

Monday, Michael Kinstlick (class of '90), published a piece on Ultiworld.

Mr. Kinstlick, co-owner of the AUDL's San Francisco franchise, argues that the AUDL and MLU are playing a vital role in Ultimate's development, providing an alternative to USA Ultimate's "pay-to-play" model. 

He joins current captain Alexander Palmer, who has been working as an Ultiworld opinion columnist since January.

Ultiworld is currently the premeire source of Ultimate news in the US. In addition to regular coverage and analysis of College, Club, and Pro Ultimate, Ultiworld reports on the business decisions that shape the development of our sport.

STEAK!!! April 2, 2013

Uptown Local finished another weekend undefeated to win Steakfest 2013! UpLo fought through a slow start on Saturday ending with a solid 13-8 win over Dickinson. Sunday began with a tough injury to o-line cutter Karl Bayer during warmups. Despite the loss, Columbia came out strong with an emphatic 15-2 win over hosts Shippensburg.

In the final game vs. undefeated D-III powerhouse Stevens Tech, UpLo allowed two consecutive breaks to start the game. When it looked the most bleak, the Columbia sidelines lit up and the team responded. UpLo did not allow another break and powered through to the last point, winning 15-8.

The steak was delicious.

Big Weekend in Atlantic City March 10, 2013

Columbia Ultimate had a solid weekend at the Atlantic City Invite. Both teams battled through seriously depleted rosters in a grueling series of games.

Uptown Local took 3rd over Shippensburg University, breaking seed and going 6-1 for the tournament.

Duplo took the B-Team Championship, beating Shippensburg-B for 17th place after a comeback of seven breaks in a row.

Stay tuned for MVP announcements later this week.

Uptown Local Wins Callahans in the Capitol March 4, 2013

This weekend, Uptown Local went 7-0 to win our first tournament of the College Regular Season. While we were originally the 10th seed, the team played fantastic offense (our offense started 51 points and scored on 43 of them) and commanding, athletic defense to earn a shoutout from USA Ultimate.

A further congratulations to our two tournament MVPs, Cameron Bruggeman and Eric "DP" Chen.
