Early into the Madison Radicals season, when Bill Everhart told me the city’s professional ultimate disc team expected to win the 2016 American Ultimate Disc League title, it was easy to view his words as a confident and intimidating boast from a guy on one of the most experienced and toughest teams in the country.
But now it’s beginning to look as if Everhart’s prediction was right on target.
Madison has made the AUDL’s final four in three of the team’s four seasons of existence, and the Radicals finished 13-1 last year, coming within two points of winning the 2015 AUDL title in San Jose, Calif. No wonder several hundred local fans already have purchased their tickets for championship weekend, which will feature the best teams from each of the league’s four divisions competing in a playoff format. All three games will be live-streamed on ESPN3.
The Radicals will go for their ninth win of the season and 29th in a row at Breese Stevens on Saturday, June 11, at 6 p.m. against the 4-5 Detroit Mechanix and then return home for the final regular-season game against the Indianapolis Alleycats on July 10.
The Radicals hope their season will be far from over, though.
