GANNON BUHR TRIUMPH SERIES; TODAY AT 9AM MDT

2023 Discmania Combine Tour Results: St. Louis

On a blistering summer day in St. Louis, the first Discmania Combine of the 2023 season took place. It was a scorching 101-degrees (110-degrees in the shade) but that didn't scare the likes of 28 resilient player from all over the country in attendance for a chance to make Team Discmania.

This particular event sold out in less than 2-mins just to show how high the demand for these events really is, especially when it's one of only two events and the only Discmania Combine in the United States this year (the other is in Canada). But even more impressive was that 13-States were represented and the national diversity at any combine event ever.

A lot of newer players were participating along with a few veterans and two players from previous events in recent years giving it another shot. This was the time to shine, outperform the competition and showcase their throwing skills under pressure.
