Luther Men's Ultimate Frisbee includes two teams: Luther Ultimate Flying Disc Association (LUFDA), Luther's nationally-competitive A-team that competes Division-I or Division-III depending on the year, and Pound, Luther's less intense, yet still ambitious B-team that competes Division-III. Together, we are a group of athletes who practice and train in order to compete at the highest level in this sport we love.
Both Luther Ultimate teams have both a fall and spring season. The fall season is generally used for practices and a handful of tournaments to build towards the more competitive spring season. In between the fall and spring seasons, any Luther Ultimate player will attest to the intense conditioning and practices over J-term. In the spring, both teams will practice hard and attend multiple tournaments across the country to prepare for the USA Ultimate College Series that takes place in April and May. Thought of as the postseason, the USA Ultimate College Series consists of the Conference Championships, Regional tournaments, and the 'ultimate' goal for all teams, the National Championships.
In 2009, LUFDA made it all the way to the National Championships in Columbus, Ohio, for the first time where they finished in 11th place. LUFDA has continued their success by appearing in the Division-I National tournament three more times since then, finishing as high as 5th in 2012. They also made nationals at the Division-III level in 2019, finishing in 7th place.
Both teams would like to thank their alumni, friends, family, Luther administration, and the Luther community, for their continued support. They hope to see you all on the sidelines at some point this season.
