For over 40 years, the Brown Ultimate program has churned out elite players and coaches all across the country. Brown Ultimate, commonly referred to as “The Program,” claims three men’s national titles (2000, 2005, and 2019) and five Callahan winners. BMo returned to College Nationals in 2018 after a 10-year hiatus, thanks to the superior coaching of Sam Lehman and Jake Smart, whose commitment and acuity have taken BMo from kangaroo court to nationals contender.
Regionals Recap: “Mo Season, No Problem”
Riding the high of a strong Easterns performance and delighted with a 4-bid New England region, BMo has been enjoying the thrill of post-season play over the course of the past few weeks. Of course, we have also been enjoying the increased practice intensity and running that accompany our aspirations. Additionally, we are extremely honored and excited to announce our 2023 Callahan Nominee, Leo Gordon! Leo has been a wondrous player for BMo, on and off the field. You may have seen his incredible play, but did you know about his work as our Community Well-being Chair or his awesome dance moves?! There is no one more deserving, and it is a delight to call him my teammate.
Easterns Recap: Like The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, but in the East!
In the great collegiate tradition, Spring Break is a week of debauchery, delight, and dancing. For BMo, our spring break offers something far more valuable: several days of pure joy in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, at Easterns. This year’s edition came with a must-do, push-has-come-to-shove mission to earn a bid for our region (more on that later).
SMI Recap: “You’re the Only Ten I See”
This past weekend BMo packed our bags for some good old-fashioned, honky-tonk fun at the Smoky Mountain Invite, hosted at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Yet again we rose far earlier than the sun, flying down for a pit stop in St. Louis before heading to Nashville. In the Music City, we joined BMo Alum Eli Motycka at Martin’s Bar-B-Que (unfortunately no relation to our dear Martin Trouilloud) for a delicious lunch. Following that, we battled hurricane-level winds as we drove across the state to Knoxville—winds almost as frightening as those on the MK field during a zone practice. Everyone made it to the hotel safe and sound where we all promptly headed straight to bed, excited for the games to come. Unlike FloWo, we came into SMI decently healthy and hoped to build chemistry with almost all of our pieces in play.
