Paideia traveled down the street to their first college tournament of the season, Discs Over Georgia, hosted by Emory. Paideia fell to Clemson twice on the weekend, once in pool play (10-4) and again in the semifinals (13-5). Other local high school team Heritage failed to make it out of the pool, losing to Clemson 11-4. Paideia trumped Georgia College & State University in the quarterfinals 9-7 before facing Clemson again. Ben Slade of Clemson offers the following writeup on RSD:
Paidiea gets an upwind break to start the game 1-0 on an overthrow. The offenses trade laborious upwind scores back and forth to three all, with many windy turnovers. Clemson becomes enamored with throwing it away on the goal-line. #15 from Paidiea is working hard and resetting the offense well against Clemson's flat marks. Clemson gets several breaks and works to take half at 7-3 or 7-4. Out of half, Clemson takes control on defense and doesn't look back, winning by a safe margin. Paidiea's over-the-top throws get caught in the nasty wind (20-25mph gusts, and very swirly).
Are any other high school teams attending college tournaments? Several teams submitted bids to Huck of the Irish but were turned down, and YHB, Pennsbury, and Columbia have expressed interest in attending Cultimate's Roll Call tournament in Washington, D.C. on March 29th and 30th.
