Thanks to Bethany Sanchez for the results.
We had a GREAT time last weekend, playing DDC in Madison at the 30th Annual Wisconsin State Overall Frisbee Championships. We had 10 teams, and at least half a dozen people told me that they were really happy to get more experience playing DDC and that they'd like the opportunity to play some more! As 'Ski would say, "You gotta be happy with that!" Attached are the results from the tournament, separated out by division. However, I'll need to get back to you with the complete rundown of the DDC results. Despite the fact that all teams played against each other in two pools (all divisions mixed together and some teams had players from more than one division), then had a crossover semi and a final, the spreadsheet shows only how each individual did as compared to the others in their division. Here's what I remember of the DDC results: 1. Andrew Lemann and John Elsner 2. Bethany Sanchez and Dave Bolyard I'm not sure if they played off for 3rd and 4th or not, but the other two teams in the Semi-finals were Brad Wendt and Chris Sieben, and Duster Don Hoffman and Don Hunkel. Eric Drummond took the overall title in the Open Division by half a point, edging out the win over his mentor, Andrew Lemann (who won Distance and DDC despite back and leg pain), and received the coveted silver Challis Chalice. Of special note was Woody Wendt's crushing Open Division win in MTA (12 seconds?). Barrett White, a sunny Ultimate player and disc golfer from Illinois, won the women's overall title, with first place finishes in Golf, Discathon, Distance, and Accuracy. I placed second, Karen Wendt was third and Kim Keen was fourth. Don Hunkel won the Masters Overall, Duster Hoffman won the Grandmasters Overall, Andrew Van Lanen won the Juniors Overall, and Brian Kielar won the Amateur Division Overall. Brad and Karen Wendt ran a wonderful tournament, providing two great venues (Elver Park and Heistand Park), very nice commemorative polo-type shirts with the 30th Annual logo, pizza, salad, beers and sodas on Saturday night, and lots of smiles and hugs for all. These two have more than ably run the tournament for many years, and are now handing the baton to the folks in Sheboygan, who will have a crack at it next year. I'm quite certain that I speak for anyone who has ever attended a tournament run by the Wendts in saying that we are immensely grateful to them for all the work they have put in. They always pull off a fun, well-run event, infused with lots of love for the competitors and the sport. THANK YOU, Brad and Karen! Bethany
