The first AUDL Power Rankings of 2017 were released yesterday, with little change at the top from last season’s final rankings and a log jam officially declared at the top of the East Division. The rankings are led by #1 Dallas and #2 San Francisco, the latter back in front of Madison thanks to all the new signings after falling to 3rd at the end of 2016. The Breeze find themselves at #6.
District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser has made her plans to attend our 2017 Home Opener!

Here, player Jaime Capron gives us an insight into the two teams.
The Nashville NightWatch announced this past Friday that Jesse Shofner would be a part of their opening day lineup, making her the first woman to make an opening day roster in the 6 year history of the AUDL.

Wind can be an ultimate players best friend or worst enemy. Both the Club Young Alums and College All-Stars found a way to work with the breezy weather and put on a great game for an engaged and energetic crowd at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, VA. Although the final score of 15-5 may say otherwise, the Alums and the All-Stars battled back and forth all game.
The DC Club Young Alums prevailed yesterday over the College All-Stars in our Women’s Showcase game on a brisk, partly sunny afternoon in Arlington.
