Coming off their most successful season to date, Thoroughbred had high hopes for the 2018 season. However the team looked very different this year— many returners either moved or decided to venture from Mixed leaving big holes in the Thoroughbred roster. These holes were filled with new and generally younger players, creating new opportunities and challenges. Young, less experienced players often come in with open minds and are ready to soak up what you give them— an excellent opportunity for Thoroughbred in the long run. Plus, young legs are very handy to have around when the points get long. However, a ‘first year’ heavy team has to teach, get everyone on the same page, and find their chemistry quick to have any chance of success in the post-season. With an up and down regular season, Thoroughbred came into regionals ranked thirteenth out of sixteen teams. They went 1-4 for the weekend, finishing in fourteenth, beating the Hellbenders (Springfield, MO), and losing to NOISE (Madison, WI), Northern Comfort (Milwaukee, WI), panIC (Iowa City, IA), and Mojo Jojo (Minneapolis, MN). Thoroughbred’s season didn’t go as hoped but, as is their way, they stayed goofy ponies. With a solid base, new talent, and a lot of growth under their belt, it’ll be exciting to see where they go next season.
