Tufts Women's Ultimate Trip to Nationals 2019
We will be playing in the DI College Ultimate National Championship in Round Rock, TX, May 24-27, and we need your help!
Though we receive some funding from Tufts, the majority of our in-season costs are funded by our players. Almost the entire cost to compete at College Nationals falls on the team itself. All the funds we raise here will help cover flights, hotels, rentals cars, meals, and other travel expenses. Your contribution will help send us to the National Championship!
The EWO kicked off our season in North Carolina at Queen City Tune-Up. We started off the season strong by going undefeated in pool play and ultimately breaking seed to finish 4th at the tournament. Next we were off to Commonwealth Cup in Martinsville, VA, where we played in 35 degree weather and pouring rain throughout pool play on Saturday. In a shortened bracket on Sunday we finished 9th place overall, and went home ready to work hard in the month leading up to Centex.
We concluded our regular season at Centex in Austin, TX, where we played some very tight games, but went 0-3 in pool play. On Sunday the team came out with something to prove and beat the tournament 1 seed, Wisconsin, on universe in quarters. We went on to finish 3rd overall, after being seeded 7th. In the post-season, we went undefeated at sectionals including a universe win over 1st seed Northeastern. Finally at regionals, we beat Northeastern again in semifinals to secure our bid to Nationals! We also had the chance to face reigning national champions Dartmouth in finals and lost 14-15 on universe.
Every dollar donated reduces the financial burden on our players. We are hoping to fully fund the expenses of the national championship for all players. Any contribution brings us a little closer to our goal. We appreciate everyone who makes a donation or supports our team in any way. Thank you to the coaches, parents, alumni, and fans for all your support this season. You are what makes Tufts EWO so special. Thank you!
