Brownian Motion

Team Biography

For over 40 years, the Brown Ultimate program has churned out players and coaches all across the country. Brown Ultimate, commonly referred to as “The Program,” claims two men’s national titles (2000 and 2005) and four* Callahan winners: Fortunat Mueller (1999), Justin Safdie (2000), Pauline Lauterbach Ruegg (2002) and Joshua Ziperstein (2005). The Program consists of three teams that compete in the men’s division —Brownian Motion, Polyester Funkadelic and Mothership — and two that compete in the women’s division — Disco Inferno and Cosmic Rays. Brownian Motion benefits from great youth ultimate scenes in the Bay Area, Seattle, Philadelphia, Massachusetts, New York and Atlanta, as well as strong club programs in New York, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Boston. Following a legendary victory at Lobby P in the fall, this year’s BMo had an exceptional spring regular season, winning Florida Warmup and Easterns, and finishing second at Stanford Invite. BMo relies heavily on the play of its elite players — all 22 of them. BMo returns to its second straight Nationals after a 10-year hiatus thanks to its youth and the superior coaching of Sam Lehman and Jake Smart, whose commitment and acuity have taken BMo from kangaroo court to Nationals contender.
