The Ultimate Frisbee team will host an intramural Ultimate Frisbee competition Friday night and Saturday to help raise money for next season’s fees.
The entry free to get into the tournament will be $50, and up to 14 people can be on each team. There have to be at least two women on each team, and none can have more than two team members on their team.
Nicholas Winn, senior youth and family ministry major from Nashville, said he wants people to know that ACU has an Ultimate Frisbee team on campus.
“So ACU Ultimate started in January 2017 and started with about 12 guys, and now we got about 18 guys on the team,” Winn said. “We really just want to grow ultimate Frisbee as a sport on campus because rugby and lacrosse have definitely gotten plenty of attention, but we definitely want to get a lot more attention to ultimate Frisbee because it’s a huge sport in the US.”
Winn said ACU plays a lot of challenging teams in ultimate, even being classified as a Div. III school in the league.
“So, we had one tournament a year ago where we played small schools such as San Angelo, Sul Ross, but this year we definitely stepped it up,” Winn said. “We’ve played Texas Tech, UT Dallas, UT Arlington. We’ve played Baylor and Rice this last weekend.”
Mason Kelly, sophomore finance and accounting major from Sachse, spoke highly of Ultimate Frisbee.
“Ultimate, in my opinion, is the best sport you never heard of,” Kelly said. “Not many people know it exists.”
