Pitt Ultimate Frisbee Defeats Wisconsin To Win National Title

The Pitt men's ultimate frisbee team beat Wisconsin 15-10 over the weekend in Boulder, Colorado to clinch the Division I national championship.

Pitt beat California-Davis, Luther and Texas before losing to Michigan in the opening round-robin stage. Their 3-1 record was enough to send them to the quarterfinals, where they defeated Minnesota. In the semifinals, Pitt came back to beat defending national champion Carleton. Against Wisconsin in the finals, Pitt jumped out to a 4-0 lead and never looked back.

Senior Colin Conner attributed the victory to Pitt's conditioning.

"We just knew that we were in better condition than them," Conner said. "When we started out the game on a 4-0 run, there was just no doubt."

Congrats to Pitt -- a national championship is certainly an accomplishment.
