College of Charleston’s women’s ultimate frisbee club team was off to a rough start Saturday morning at their tournament in Statesboro, Georgia. After losing to Wisconsin Eau Claire University 3-11 and The University of Maryland 0-13, the team improved as the tournament progressed, losing only 7-8 against Emory and 6-7 against Georgia Tech.
The team travelled to Georgia Southern University for the 18th annual College Southerns ultimate frisbee tournament. They spent both Saturday and Sunday night in tents by the game fields and utilized their free time in-between games to work on drills and review game strategies.
The team were pleased with how the team improved as a whole throughout the span of the tournament, given the amount of new team members who have little-to-no experience in competitive ultimate frisbee.
Recognized by numerous teams for their unique Sunday ritual of sporting denim overalls instead of jerseys during games, frisbee captains Clara Meier, Sarah Monderer and Sarah Mackay acknowledged that the goal in playing frisbee should not be to simply win games, but to actually enjoy them–their quirky traditions and unyielding positivity make that evident.
With the team’s progression demonstrated this weekend throughout their four games during the College Southerns tournament, the team is now eagerly awaiting and training for their sectionals tournament on April 13th and 14th.
