The champions. (Thanks for the pics Miriam Nielsen ’14 and Jocelyn Remmert ’13). More pics after the jump.

Update: Here is a more comprehensive report of the championship game.

Middlebury’s men’s ultimate team, the Pranksters, won the D-3 National Championships today in Milwaukee, WI beating the University of Puget Sound in a 12-11 nail-biter.

This is the first appearance for the Pranksters in the national championships since 2010, when both the Pranksters and the Lady Pranksters (the women’s team) made an appearance at the D-1 National Championships.  At the beginning of this year, the men’s team chose to compete in D-3 (the women’s team still plays D-1) with the team goal of winning the D-3 Championships (which they did, yay!). The team was seeded 10th, so it was an uphill battle all the same.

Games on Sunday will be based on Saturday’s results.

 If you’re having trouble finding the right team to root for, just look for the flair. Carllee James ’13 writes in, “We are the only team that doesn’t wear uniforms so look for tutus, dresses, lingerie, onesies, boxing robes, etc. Hope to see you there!!!”
