“Spring Reign is one of the largest mixed-gender youth ultimate Frisbee tournaments in the world,”* and the BWWS team participated this past weekend. From Coach McGriff:

“Bright Water took 4th Place out of 16 teams in the B Division. They had three really good games on Saturday, falling just short in their second game and ending with a record of 2 and 1, which was good enough to earn them a spot in the Championship Bracket on Sunday. The first game on Sunday day was against Seattle Waldorf’s B Team, which they won mightily. They had a tough game against Jane Adams Middle School, losing in universe point (by one at the end of time), but it was very positive and both teams had great Spirit of the Game. This left them playing against the Northwest School for 3rd and 4th. This was also very close until the end, trading the lead throughout the game.

Both teams did a great job of sharing playing time within their roster and they all walked away feeling part of the team and well bonded. We had 5 girls for the whole weekend and they were troopers until the very end, though very exhausted. This was a highlight as there were many points in a row for them and times when they would have liked to come off the field, but stayed on to give the other girls a rest.

It was learning experience for our younger players and they are looking forward to next year, getting more playing time in and experiencing the festival of Ultimate that Spring Reign is.”
