Monash Games Ultimate Frisbee Day 1

In its first year in the Monash Games, Ultimate Frisbee was one exciting tournament to watch. Although there may have been some risk to spectators from wayward frisbees, the tournament was a success. 3 teams battled it out in this very unique and exciting sport, with 2 of the teams having never played before. The teams all brought their positive fun attitude which was evident in the choice of team name, all of which included Frisbeelicious, Camel Toes and Jim Jamboni Supreme Pizza~? (yes, that was their real name!).

Although the morning of the tournament brought rain, it thankfully cleared up as the tournament got underway. Despite it being sunny, the field was still wet and the wind did make for a more challenging game which saw players slip and frisbees go rogue, but this didn't stop any of the three teams bringing all they had to the day.

As the competition progressed it was evident that this was a friendly environment, with everyone playing just for the fun of it and no on field drama. Everyone was laughing and cheering each other on, but the games were still very competitive regardless.

After a fierce competition Frisbeelicious and Camel Toes made it to the finals.  However, as Frisbeelicious were from the Ultimate Frisbee Club and had won both their games convincingly it was decided that Frisbeelicious were the overall winners and the final would see the two finalist teams be mixed up for some extra fun. This led a game between one team wearing red sashes and other being plain. After a fantastic game, that saw some unbelievable catches, including a juggling catch to score, and a few injuries, including a frisbee to the head the red sash team came out victorious.

Congratulations to the winners, Frisbeelicious and everyone involved in the first of hopefully many years of ultimate frisbee in the Monash games.
