We do many things included but not limited to: frisbee, wearing jorts, telling childhood stories, and frisbee. No previous experience is required!

Ladies Love Ultimate Frisbee

Brittany Manobianco ’13 and recently-turned-21 Ivy Johnson ’13 write in to let you know about the first informal practice for Vicious Circles, Wesleyan’s only ultimate frisbee team that sports an all-female roster. If you’re interested in playing club frisbee, then come on out to Foss Hill on Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 with tennis shoes or cleats and some other athletic garb. No previous experience is required, and all grade levels are welcome though I’ve heard they have a special bias towards winning over the Class of 2016. So, come on out, and you can make awesome pyramids like this one.

Date: Wednesday, Sept. 5th (TOMORROW!)
Time: 4:30 p.m.
Place: Foss Hill

Cards Win All Home Games

So while many at Wes (myself included) are not avid followers of Wesleyan sports, congrats to all the Wesleyan teams today who trounced Bates.  Field hockey won 3-1, football 28-20, women’s soccer 2-1, and men’s soccer 2-0 – continuing their undefeated season which has placed them as New England’s top team (their second best run so far in Wesleyan history).  Go Wes!

Vicious Circles, the women’s ultimate team, also won the Smith tournament this weekend, beating Smith, RPI, Mt. Holyoke,  Fordham and Smith Alumni. Go Wes again!
