Tyler Monroe, a 2016 rookie, has signed a new contract with the DC Breeze for the 2017 season.
One of the squad’s youngest yet most impactful members, Monroe first began playing ultimate in Seattle as a middle schooler and hasn’t put down the disc since. He is now playing for the Breeze while finishing up his degree and also playing for George Washington University.

Chalk it up to his 2016 captain, Rowan McDonnell, to stoke the fire for Monroe’s 2017 return. “Rowan said we are going to be competing for the East this year, and that was enough to convince me. I feel like I have unfinished business from our game against Toronto last season, and can’t wait to get another chance to go for the conference title.”
Monroe also looks forward to seeing the impact that the rising young DC-based talent will have on the Breeze 2017 roster and in season to come. “With the number of great college guys we have in the area, I think the Breeze are going to be excellent this year and beyond.”
