University of Texas San Antonio beat Indiana University Quidditch Club 150*-60, but not without a fight. Indiana battled for points, staying closely behind UTSA and went full force, getting two yellow cards and one red card in the process. However, it was UTSA’s sideline shouts of “maximum effort” that helped them pull ahead and grab the snitch first.

UTSA’s captain Taylor Tracy said it felt good to start the national championship with a win. “It’s a stepping stone for us right now,” he said. “We want to carry this momentum into the next two games.”
