Class of 2016 organizes Ultimate Frisbee Tournament
The sophomore class will be hosting an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament on May 17.
The idea for this tournament came about when in the fall, the sophomore class hosted a successful cornhole tournament, according to sophomore class President Samantha Brunn.
“We wanted another sort of sporting event that would draw people in the spring time,” Brunn said.
The funds from the tournament will go toward next year’s Prom expenses, according to class of 2016 adviser Mark Kister.
According to the Cleveland Disc Association, the game of Ultimate Frisbee is played by two teams on a field with end zones. The object of the game is to pass the disc down the field and have a teammate catch it in the end zone.
The cost of the Tournament is $16 per team if they preregister and $20 per team at the door. Teams can preregister by emailing Mark Kister.
Teams should consist of four to eight people, and it is preferred that people show up the day of the tournament with teams already made, Brunn said. Individuals or groups who do not have a full team may be combined with others to create a team.
Cash prizes will be awarded for first through third place. The tournament is open to all ages and skill levels.
“It is pretty much open to anyone, those with or without experience. The community is invited to participate as well,” Kister said.
The tournament will be held at 4:30 p.m. on the fields on the hill behind the high school.
