Busloads of teams, scores of screaming spectators, as well as Fox Sports, turned out to support the National Collegiate Paintball Association’s National Championships, held April 13-15, in Lakeland, FL.
After three grueling days of competition, the Eagles’ Paintball Team battled its way to an impressive 5th place finish. Although over fifty teams competed, the Eagles dominated in early rounds and went into the quarter finals seeded number one- beating out powerhouse schools such as: Ohio State, Texas A &M, Florida State, West Point and the Air Force Academy!
The Eagles would like to include a special “plus one” shout out to John Schenkelburg for his continued support of the team. They would also like to thank their loyal fans, the ERAU Paintball Club and Professor Puls for unwavering enthusiasm and assistance.
Even though the season is over, for now, the team is always looking for more players and is striving to finish in the top 3 next year. Practices begin in early September. For more information about the team, go to the Eagle’s Paintball Club page on Facebook or contact.
