September 28 & 29, 2012 – Regionals

Posted: October 15, 2012 in Ultimate

We had a disappointing tournament as a team but I thought I played reasonably well. My legs felt pretty good. It’s heartening to know that I can cut and get open consistently against defenders 10-15 years younger than me. If anything I feel I’ve become more explosive and better in the air than I was 5-10 years ago. Thank you squats.

I felt like crap and played like crap. Zero energy and our team got trounced. Worst practice of the season.

I had a weekend full of ultimate and all I can say is that winning is fun. We went 5-1 on the weekend. Our only loss came in the finals. I feel I played pretty well and I felt pretty good physically. I was still pretty beat up physically after the weekend but I think that is going to happen no matter what if your play as many games as we do in a weekend. Its a different type of wear and tear. We will be playing in the Southeast Regionals in Orlando on September 29-30.

We had our last practice before Sectional. It was incredibly windy and we got a lot of good zone work in. We will see how things go this weekend but I have to say I am somewhat underwhelmed by the attendance at practice.  I had a semi-frustrating night. Decision-making and execution on throw could be better and my energy level were kind of low. I think it can go either way this weekend.

We skipped the drills and went straight into a scrimmage. No men subs on our team. We played the first game to 13. After trading back and forth to 9-9 we clamped down on D and took it 13-9. We took a small break and then played a mini game which ended up 3-2 also in our favor.  I haven’t played that much in a while. 29 points in 90 minutes is plenty. I was moving around pretty well but I definitely felt it towards the end.  I was exhausted. Woke up in the middle of the night with a calf cramp. Not a fun way to wake up.

We did an offense-defense huck drill and then scrimmaged a team made up mostly of UM players.  We won pretty comfortably and used the new zone we have been working on with some success.

Practice at Coral Gables High at 11:00 am. The theme again was the overwhelming heat. It was freaking hot. We drilled some and then played a game to 13. I didnt feel as good as I did Wednesday but I put that down to the sweltering conditions. We had 1 sub for men on our team. I think I sat out only 2 points. Did I mention it was f’in hot.
