Southern Connecticut State - A True Dodgeball Story

This was our first year as a serious team (we played 2 events in the past with new players). For a put together team I think we did fairly well for the season and nationals considering some of our players were shooting 98 customs less than a year ago. I think that even though we didnt win nationals or take the season, we are the true underdog story of the NCPA AA. Im still in shock at placing 3rd, especially after playing awesome teams like Texas AM, Georgia Tech, and TCU. We had a great season and we can't wait for the next one since none of our players are graduating . Leave feedback here. We would love to hear it!!

Not sure, but we have a documentary of our trip to the national championships in the making. Ill let you know once the footage uploads and we spend a ridiculous amount of hours reviewing it.

I actually was able to catch quite a few of your games (I think I may have a few pictures as well that will be posted up later this week). It was impressive to see you guys work together as a team. Many of the more well founded teams forget how much power there is in a group of 5 people on the field who have grown together from their first few days in the sport. I have known many such stories of the "underdog"s that shot T-98's just months before putting some real hurt on the "serious" teams.

Keep up the good work guys, you will only get better.

We (GT) were also pretty shocked at making it to play for 3rd/4th. We've had a team for a few seasons, but we never really clicked until 2 weeks before the nationals (good time to pull it together huh? haha). Good game guys!

Im guessing thats jackie? We were kinda pumped to play you guys. Especially after watching you guys smash so many good teams. After we made it past saturday I was like, "Alright, I'm done. We can go home now."

Thanks for the support! Can't wait to see the pics!! Didn't get to see too much of Class A. How did Penn State do?

Yeah we (tech) were kinda in the same boat, this was the first time that we made it past the prelims this season! You guys played great, congrats on beating us out for 3rd haha. It was a fun game (although I think we should have all broke the A like we talked about for the last point).

Good luck next season! Hope you see just as much success.

I think nationals overall was an underdog story. It was the first time we have ever made it to sunday at nationals, and frost bowl was our 1st ncpa win ever. most of the time we always got knocked out during prelims by a few points. All the teams were grinding hard all weekend and some top notch splatterspheres was played. hope to see all you guys again soon!
