The Middle School Ultimate team enjoyed a fun and successful run last weekend in Burlington at Spring Reign, the largest mixed-gender youth tournament in the world. The team played its way into the C Division championship game, falling to a spirited Whidbey Island Waldorf team. En route, Bright Water Waldorf beat teams from Seattle’s Washington Middle School, Roosevelt Middle School of Eugene, Ore., Stratford Hall School from Vancouver, B.C., and Winnipeg’s St. John-Ravenscourt School. The team went 4-2 on the weekend, with both losses to Whidbey. 

 

More than half the team had not experienced tournament play—six games in two days in a festival atmosphere—and the weekend saw enormous growth across the entire squad. The kids improved their play every game and showed admirable grace both in victory and defeat. Over the course of the season, they’ve become a much more skilled group and supportive team mates. 

The season continues this Saturday when the Middle School team returns to league play against Seattle Country Day School and Lakeside Middle School. The games begin at 1:45 on the Woodland Park play fields.
