  • Tufts vs. Ohio State | Women's Quarterfinal

    The 2022 season couldn't have started better for #14 Tufts Ewo who outscored opponents 39-4 across 3 games on Saturday.

  • Florida vs. Case Western Reserve | Women's Pool Play

    Florida FUEL was oh-so-close to making nationals in the 2021 fall season, falling on universe point in the game-to-go.

  • UNC Wilmington vs. Michigan | Men's Pool Play

    Coming off the program's first ever nationals semifinals appearance in the fall, #7 Michigan MagnUM will need to retool if they want to make another deep run in May.

  • Columbia vs. Ohio | Women's Pool Play

    Columbia Curbside hasn't been nationally relevant since the mid-90s, but an appearance at Queen City could signal they are a program on the rise. #25 Ohio Stacked Cats may be a year or two ahead of Columbia, but they'll need to learn from a difficult weekend at nationals if they want to go furthe...

  • Case Western Reserve vs. Maryland | Men's Pool Play

    The Maryland Space Bastards make their 2022 season debut against the Case Western Reserve Fighting Gobies.
