Today is a sad day for everyone who knew Jeff Coupie. He was a great friend, a leader in both the community where he lived and the community of people with disabilities, and important part of our team. We love you Jeff - you will be missed.

The team fought hard at nationals, missing out on the D2 championship pool by 1 point. A tough one point loss to Minnesota finoished the tourney, but plenty of highlights give the players plenty to build on in 2012/2013.

Next stop, Nationals!!! The Storm went 4-1 over the weekend, beating Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, North Texas, and Indianapolis. The loss against Minnesota was a hard fought battle. A score correction at the end of the 3rd quarter left the temas tied but the Northstars played better defense and finished the job. The team will be looking forward to the rematch in Kentucky next month.

The team traveled to Ohio for a mini tournament over the weekend. Because the level of competition wasn't evenly matched, players fromt eh Storm and Grand Rapids swapped to form two more equal teams. Both squads played hard and came home with some wins.

Eric Chase was selected for the 2012 USA Wheelchair Rugby Team. 2 Storm athletes (Eric and Andy Zimmer) were invited to tryout. They trained relentlessly leading up to the tryout which was 4 long, hard days of hard rugby in Alabama. Their competition - the best in the world. We're truly proud of them both!

The team goes undefeated in the one day Battle Creek 3 team mini tournament. Indy proved to be a tougher opponent than anticipated, but not as tough as the soft rubber floor. All 3 teams had difficulty with the surface, seriously testing each player's conditioning.

Nov 13, 2011 - Slippery Rock, PA
Having won 7 of the last 8 tournaments hosted by Pittsburgh, we went in confident but knowing there were 7 teams looking to break that streak. Yet the compettion wasn't up to the challenge as the Storm ripped thru all their opponenets bu at least 10 points. Andy Zimmer was again honored, this time as the tournaments best low point player.

Oct 15, 2011 - Las Vegas
While Las Vegas seems inviting, it's no easier to come home with Gold at rugby than it is in the casinos. The team put up a good fight but came home 1-4. Andy Zimmer won all tournament team honors at his (1.0) classification.
