Teams New and Old to Compete in Southeast Regionals


Premier Division

Ten premier teams will vie for two bids to the Pro Division at Southeast Regionals this Saturday.

With the 8th most Pro Points accumulated this season and thus likely to earn a bid if they do not auto-qualify, #12 Tetelestai (Jesse Throw and Logan Cornelius) only needs to concern itself with (a) earning points towards the Spikeball™ Elite race and (b) securing a strong seed in the Pro Division (see how that works here). Despite reaching the podium in two of their first three tour stops, the pair finished T-9th in their last two appearances of the regular season. They’ll need to channel their winning ways from the spring to emerge at the top of this crowded division.

As the top-ranked team in the Southeast, #10 Easily Dug (Andrew Card and Travis Core) has its eye on the prize. Along the way, look for them to seek redemption for their close loss to Tetelestai at SummerSpike 2018 in June. Playing their first double-elimination tournament SRA event of the year, these two defensive stars must prepare to pace themselves for the long day — be it through the loser’s bracket or with a long wait on the winner’s side.

Caleb Royse of Cho's Bros swings through on a ball at SummerSpike 2018.

As the two other Power Ranked teams attending, #15 Sonic Boom (Connor Harte and Ben Bunze) and #25 Cho’s Bros (Caleb Royse and Micah Corbett) both have a solid chance at qualifying for Pro Division. The big difference between these two teams is that Cho’s Bros currently sits in a viable position to qualify on points and should be content finishing T-5th. Sonic Boom, on the other hand, can only earn a spot in the Pro Division with a top-two finish. To achieve that, they would need to score some historic upsets.

Although there are plenty of strong established teams attending, the Southeast Regionals favorite may be coming out of left field. That’s because Chubby Bunny (Harding Brumby and Troy Mauk) is reuniting for the first time since June 2016. Mauk is perhaps the best player in the division and Brumby has plenty of winning experience to complement the former National Champion. Chubby Bunny placed second at Southeast Regionals and T-5th at Nationals in 2015.

Rounding out the field is Recrem (Gustavo Gonzales and Karry Nusbaum), Phoenix (Brian Childs and Sam Konstanty), Last Resort (Ben Landes and Addison Powers), RiZac (George Rizk and Zac Hummel), and Zig Zag (Zach Webb and Zeke Friedman).

Advanced Division

Thirty-eight teams will be competing in the Southeast Advanced Division and there is no shortage of talented players. There will be a few strong half-premier teams in the mix, with players including David Gonzales, Fredric Hinkle, Tripp Pierson, and David Thole headlining the division.
