Byline: The Register-Guard
Co-captains Aaron Bell and David Berney Needleman led Ego, the University of Oregon Ultimate frisbee team, to a fifth-place finish in the club sport's national championship tournament last week in Columbus, Ohio. The UO squad, which won the regional qualifier a month ago when it downed Stanford 15-10 in the championship game, was eliminated by Stanford 15-11 in the national tournament's quarterfinal round. Needleman and Bell are among the seven players selected to the Northwest All-Region Team and Bell was a runner-up for the Callahan Award, the sport's highest collegiate honor.
