Richmond Spidermonkeys

The Richmond Spidermonkeys are the University of Richmond Men's Club Ultimate Team. We compete in USA Ultimate's Men's DIII College Division and are the current defending champions of both the North Atlantic Coast Section and Atlantic Coast Region. At 2016 DIII Nationals, we finished 9th and were voted the most Spirted Team.


Fall 2016 Recap

"Richmond has set the standard for consistent excellence in the Atlantic Coast and just dominated all weekend at Jungle Fever. Unless their regional rivals in North Carolina can find a way to overcome Richmond’s deep bench, they will likely remain the best team in the Atlantic Coast and one of the best in the country." -Mike Ball and Hugo Sowder, Ultiworld (November, 2016)


Spring 2016 Recap

The 2016 season was the teams second trip to DIII Nationals (previously in 2014), where we placed 9th. During the season we won three tournaments: Layout Pigout, North Atlantic Coast Region Conferences, and Atlantic Coast Regionals (See tournaments for oppenents and scores). In addition our players won the following awards:

Player of the Region: Henry Babcock

Atlantic Coast All Freshman Team: Chris Selwood

First Team All Region: Henry Babcock and Dennis McClaine

Second Team All Region: Joey Cullison and Chris Selwood

"If you asked anybody how Richmond's season would go, not many people would have predicted this. After graduating a senior class who led the team to three regional championship game appearances and two trips to DIII Nationals, this was supposed to be a rebuilding season for the Spidermonkeys. Nobody told them that." -Michael Ball, Ultiworld (April, 2016)

"Richmond dominated what was likely the most challenging regional championship tournament in the country. They were broken fewer than ten times all weekend, and when their defense generated a turn, they converted almost every time. Henry Babcock and Joey Cullison form a handler-cutter pair as strong as any in the country. Babcock's range of throws open up the deep lane, the break side, and everywhere else on the field; Cullison's speed and athleticism are a match-up nightmare. Most teams will have to choose to put their best defender on one of these two players and leave the other to do damage. Richmond has beaten Brandeis twice and Franciscan once, and their only bad game of the season came in 25mph winds that they will not see this weekend [at Nationals]." - Kyle Taylor and Kyle Murray, Ultiworld (May, 2016)
