The UAH Nightmares finally formed in 2015 after multiple attempts, in previous years, to get an ultimate team at the university off the ground. The team was fortunate to be kick started with a few players with club team experience, but still felt the effects of having a limited roster. The inaugural team finished third at the D-III Southeast Regional Championship. After a solid year of recruitment, the team grew substantially but was still forced to adapt after losing star player Tom Radcliffe, who transitioned into a head coaching role. The second year saw the Nightmares finish in second place at their regional championship. The team put up significant wins throughout the 2017 season to earn a Nationals bid for the Southeast, but no other team could earn a second bid for the region. With the third time proving to be the charm, the UAH Nightmares clinched first place at regionals to become only the second different team ever to represent the Southeast at the D-III National Championships. Not satisfied, of course, the Nightmares are looking to claim a national title in 2017.
