Ultimate Frisbee First ‘Erectionals’ Tournament This Weekend

1 min read

The UMW Men’s Ultimate Frisbee team will be hosting its first tournament (in recent times) this weekend.  “Erectionals 2010” will be played at both the campus recreation turf fields and on the rugby field at the Battleground Complex. Games will be played Saturday and Sunday from about 9 a.m. to late afternoon. The pools consist of eight teams from around the Virginia and Washington D.C. area, including George Mason University and the College of William and Mary. A team of UMW alumni will also be playing.
For years, the mens ultimate team has been going to tournaments across the country, honing their skills and developing complex offensive and defensive strategies while learning to work as a team. Most recently, the team travelled to Statesboro, Ga and Charleston, Sc.  While most of the sports at UMW are fairly boring to watch, Ultimate can, and usually is, one of the most entertaining sports out there.
