USF women’s ultimate frisbee team through sections, on to regional tournament

Despite the setback made by rival school, Florida State University, USF’s Women’s Ultimate Frisbee team fortunately qualified for Regionals hosted in Tallahassee, April 29-May 1.

The Women’s Ultimate Frisbee team, the ScallyWenches, played admirably against six teams last weekend at Sectionals in Orlando. The ladies came home with three wins under their belt and three losses.

The team began play at 9:00 a.m. and fought through a rough hour and ten minutes of game against the Florida State Southern Lady Ultimate Team but came up short. The FSU team, one of USF’s biggest competition, defeated the ScallyWenches with a total score of 9-6. However, USF slammed Florida State’s B team later that day with a score of 11-1.

After the  game against Florida State, a tired USF lost another game against the University of Florida (Fuel) with a score of 10-3.

Grad student and stand-in coach, Danielle Renzi, argued that it takes a while for the team to warm up.

“Morning games are the death of us,” said Renzi. “I wish we had played FSU in the afternoon. It was a good game for us nonetheless, but we would have kicked butt with more rest from an afternoon game.”

Food and rest clearly helped the girls regain their strength to score two wins for the rest of Saturday’s afternoon games. The ScallyWenches triumphed over The University of Miami (11-7) and Florida State’s B team.

Sunday led way to USF winning one game and losing another. The girls prevailed against Florida’s B team (Diesel) but were unsuccessful against University of Central Florida (13-3).

“We tried our damnedest to pull out a win in the last game,” said captain, senior Brooke Abney. “I’m most proud for our team qualifying for sectionals ….”
