This weekend Anja made an impromptu trip to Washington DC with the LC Bird Ultimate Frisbee Club, which she joined just this week. In fact, she had never played Ultimate until her first game Saturday!
After meeting at 8am Saturday, Anja got a crash course in Ultimate on the way to DC. When they got out of the cars in Alexandria (DC suburbs where the matches were actually being held), she went straight to her first of six games over the next 24 hours!
They won half of their matches, which is especially impressive since four members of the team were last minute additions like Anja, and the school currently ranks 2nd in Virginia! Way to go, Skyhawks!
The next competition is in Buffalo, NY in May… Anja’s still deciding on that one.
One huge drawback? Anja’s cleats that served her so faithfully during Field Hockey season unexpectedly turned evil on her and raised blisters that left her literally hobbling today. 😦
