SFU ladies ultimate!!!
On the weekend of November 13-14, SFU's first ever women's Ultimate team "Lady Clam", ventured across our southern boarder into the US to attend a tournament in Burlington, Washington called "Sundodger".
This enthusiastic group of young women, with varying degrees of experience in the sport, exceeded their aspirations as a new team and managed to win three out of four games on their first day, beating such teams as U of Washington bringing them to the quarter finals. They were only defeated by some very seasoned players from Bellingham. Ultimately, the tourney was an excellent start to this kindling team's record and morale considering they had scarcely practiced together prior to the tournament.
Entering its fourth year in existence, the SFU ultimate (Frisbee) team is the fastest growing athletic club on campus, and is now comprised of more than 50 active members. As mentioned above, this year, the club boasts a spanking new women's team called "Lady Clam". These ambitious ladies are proud to be representing women's ultimate for SFU, and are looking forward to giving UBC women's teams some competition. In addition to the men's and women's teams, the Ultimate club also has a wicked recreational contingent.
SFU's commitment to having fun and getting involved in shenanigans is exemplified by the Clam members enthusiams in wearing kilts at tournaments. They even have their own lovely mascot bag piper. Streaking and boat racing are also some of SFU's ultimate club specialties.
The Ultimate club is always looking for new members, especially women to buffer up the growing 'Lady Clam'. There must be hoards of VUL ladies attending Simon Fraser University and this is the official call to any ultimate women who are hiding in the concrete or in the clouds of Burnaby Mountain at SFU.
