“This season is going to be a special one for the Braineaters, so stay tuned!” Such was the promise on the website of the 5-College Men’s


Ultimate Frisbee Team, aka the Claremont Braineaters. The team of 24 men from CMC, Harvey Mudd (6 men), Pitzer and Pomona won the men’s Division III nationals in Buffalo, N.Y. on May 22. There were 16 teams at the tournament, out of approximately 80 D-III teams in the entire country, that competed in the ultimate disc competition, a sport using flying discs that is a cross between soccer and football. The Braineaters spent last year rebuilding the team after losing a strong senior class. This year, with clear leadership, which included team captain Zack Purdy ’13, and a disciplined practice schedule, they posted strong wins, including finishing well enough to be ranked No. 24 in the USA Ultimate D-I rank- ings. They were considered the favorites going into their first Division III nationals, which began last year. Purdy said, “We were especially good this year because of star


players Markham Shofner (PO ’11) and Tommy Li ( PO ’12), as well as an excellent regular season consisting of a tournament win in San Diego in late February, and second place at a tourna- ment in Las Vegas in early March.” The Mudders participating at the Division III nationals


were Purdy, Edmund (Ned) Mills ’11, Kevin Black ’12, Jon Witte ’12, Jack Newhouse ’12 and Taylor Brent ’14.
