The Marist College Ultimate Frisbee team has grown by leaps and bounds these past few years. When I began playing in 2005, my freshman year, Marist Frisbee was just a random collection of people who had some free time and wanted to play. As time progressed, the group began to have order, and take shape. By my senior year in 2009, the Marist team had definite structure-field time, scheduled drills practices, and jerseys. We began going to tournaments.
Playing against other teams taught us how to work together and find our weaknesses. By the time spring break rolled around, we were ready to take on the ultimate East Coast challenge: the High Tide Tournament. Georgia proved to be a growing experience for our team, both as players and as friends.
We went apple picking, baked cakes, had snowball fights, played in the middle of a hail storm, survived a carpool drive from New York to Georgia and had the time of our lives.
Ultimate at Marist College creates a great competitive atmosphere, but more importantly, a place where friends can come together to play.
