BANSHEE: Ultimate Frisbee is a funfilled, athletic way to make friends CONTINUED FROM 16 sectionals tournament, there were two bids to regionals up for grabs, and the Judges were hungry to get one of the bids. In the first day of sectionals, the team went 2–1. The team had to remain in their position, the next day, in order to gain a spot in regionals. In this championship, the Judges defeated the

University of Wellesley Whiptails and earned their bid to regionals. In regionals, there were four bids to nationals. In the final game of regionals, the Judges were defeated 9–8, ultimately losing their chance at a nationals bid. Goals The team's main goal was to raise their rank to in Division III Ultimate and eventually qualify

for Nationals. Additionally, the team wants to continue to be a welcoming place where players can have a safe and fun environment to participate in an exciting sport. Experience The team encourages people of any experience level to join. “There is a wide range of experience on the team, including players who had been playing

Ultimate throughout high school and some who have never even touched a Frisbee,” explained Maya Fields ’19. According to Anna Sherman ’20 in an interview with the Justice, “You get results that reflect the amount of effort and time you put in. People are surprised how much they've improved over the course of the semester, and it's always encouraging to see new players with zero experience evolve.”

The team practices year-round; however, according to Muhlfelder, there is “no commitment requirement to be on the team, and we see the full spectrum of commitment — some people only come from time to time just because they love the sport.” —Editor’s Note: Editor Mia Rubinstein is a member of Banshee and did not contribute to or edit this article.
