Ball State men’s ultimate moved onto the Quarterfinals, braved winter conditions

Snow, wind and cold temperatures. These were the conditions the Wizardz faced today.

Through cold bodies, the Ball State Wizardz Ultimate Frisbee men’s team (5-3, 0-1 Eastern Plains Conference) managed to power through to the 1st place bracket with a 2-2 record on the day.

In the first game, the Wizardz faced the No. 2 seeded team of Purdue Undue. The Wizardz kept with Undue for the first half and trailed by one goal. Then, the wheels fell off in the second half. The final score was 13-7.

The second game against No. 3 seed Tennesse Agent Orange started like in the second half of the Purdue game. Both teams faced snow and windblown into their faces. The wheels definitely fell off in this game with the final score 12-3, Agent Orange.

But the Wizardz managed to turn the car around in their last game of the day against No. 7 seed Missouri. The Wizardz won their game, 12-8. After hearing that their next team forfeited the Pre-Quarterfinal game, the Wizardz moved onto the next round.
