The “187” Crew one of New England’s up and coming teams has just been Eclipsed!!
Planet Eclipse are pleased to announce the Upton boys have joined the Eclipse Army and look forward to a great year with them!!
upTon 187 cRew has grown from a 3-man rookie team called Kamo Killaz back in the fall of 2004. The team quickly progressed from being a 3-man team to 5-man team and by the end of 2005 was playing 7-man and competing in the NPPL at the Commanders Cup in Miami Florida. In 2006 the team was renamed 187 cRew and in 2007 the team went on to be crowned the Division II NPPL season champions. In 2009 the team entered the AXBL and finished the regular season as the #1 seed heading into the playoffs. The team finished 2nd overall for the AXBL, behind a very strong Philly Heros team. 2010 brings a strong focus on x-ball and the PSP. We will be competing in Division 2 x-ball for the 2010 season and looking to continue our winning ways. If all goes well we’ll be moving up the later in 2011 and beyond with an end goal of fielding a pro paintball team in the coming years.
The team has had the same core players on the roster for the past 4+ years. We’ve seen the kids grow up both as players and people. Many of the players started out on this team when they were only 11 or 12 years old. The team has always called Fox 4 Paintball their home field and has enjoyed a very strong relationship with the field. The team gets tremendous support from Fox 4 and wouldn’t be where they’re at today without their help. Special thanks this season to Planet Eclipse for supplying the best marker on the Planet along with some soft goods such as pads and gear bags. We’d also like to thank KEE Action sports for supplying the majority of our soft goods – pants, jerseys, mask, gloves, packs and most importantly the world best paint – RPS Ultra Evil – the paint of champions.
