The AUDL’s Seattle Cascades, now under new ownership by the Titcomb family, has announced a partnership with Seattle Sockeye, the long-established men’s club team from the city.
From the press release:
Cascades and Sockeye leadership will be working together to help create the Cascades roster at the conclusion of the Cascades Combine, Jan 30-31. While there will be many current Sockeye players joining the Cascades, a significant number of Cascades roster positions will be offered to players who show promise during the Cascades tryout process, regardless of club team affiliation.
“I’m excited that we’re working together to develop ultimate in the Seattle community and that we’re getting a chance to compete against the top players in the AUDL West,” newly announced Sockeye captain Phil Murray said in a statement.
While this news is not a surprise considering the ownership change (Vehro Titcomb plays for Sockeye), it is still a significant development and another boost for the AUDL Western Division.
