This year's Manila Spirits will have a High School theme, thus it's called Manila Spirits High, Ultimate Class of 2011. If you haven't seen the website yet, it's here. Check out the different teams participating this year's event on the 'Frenemies' Post It link. Be sure to click the list to see each team's roster.
The team roster has been finalized. We got a pretty good team going in, far better than the team we had last year's Manila Spirits when we finished 3rd in our pool and 19th out of 40 overall (climbing 7 spots from our initial seeding). This year, the competition is going to be much much tougher as there are limited spots and the strong teams were prioritized. We were quite lucky just to get in. It would be interesting to see how we're seeded this year.
Training has been going well, despite a few cancellations due to weather disturbances. But the team will be ready next week. The chemistry is there, and the flow is there. We'll be working on our defense as we wind down our preparations. It's going to be a good tournament, regardless of results. We earned our spot, and from here on out, it's all about earning the respect of the disc community.
