In a sport dominated by men, the young women of Prior Lake High School have banded together to create the very first all-girls Ultimate Frisbee team in the high school’s history. As a sport that attracts athletes of all backgrounds, ironically, Ultimate Frisbee teams have historically lacked female members. If young women are at all interested in joining Ultimate Frisbee, “this is a great opportunity,” stresses team founder Madison Deile (senior).

The sport of Ultimate Frisbee combines aspects of both basketball and soccer, creating a high-paced and exciting new sport. In order to move the frisbee disc up and down the field, players must pass it to each other. In order to play, there must be seven athletes on the field at all time, with at least two from each team occupying the two main positions: “handlers” and “cutters.”

The team will meet two to three times a week for two hour practices. Their season will consists of games of Tuesday nights, approximately two tournaments, and automatic qualification and participation in the Ultimate Frisbee state tournament in June. Further, women on the team will earn a letter by simply participating.

If you are interested in joining the team, contact Madison Deile (goldenpaintz@gmail.com) for more information.
