In its fourth year as a club, Ultimate Frisbee looks to win state after placing second in last year’s championship game.

Besides being runner-ups in the state championship last year, the club ranked tenth at nationals and seventeenth overall in the nation. The club also finished second at the biggest ultimate frisbee competition in the country, known as the Neuqua Knockout.

Ultimate frisbee pits two teams of seven against each other as they compete to take the disc up the field to the end zone.

I would recommend the sport to other students, it is very fun and competitive,” ultimate frisbee junior Eric Hoy said. “There is also a great opportunity to travel to tournaments all around and outside of the state. It is a great experience, hanging out with the whole team.”

The club meets every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to practice together as a team. Games and tournaments are usually held on the weekends. Those in the club are working on the fundamentals of the game with everyone while they train the newer members. 

“There have been a few struggles, like any other team would have, with a bunch of new players,” Hoy said. “The biggest thing is teaching everyone the offensive set that we run, and the zones that we use on defense.”

The team’s next tournament is on April 7 and 8 at the Indy Invite Tournament in Indianapolis.
