Ultimate: n. As in ultimate Frisbee- the game that is the sport that is rock (via UrbanDictionary)
Ultimate, once known as Ultimate Frisbee, is a sport that has caught fire on college campuses everywhere during recent years. On our own campus, there is quite a following as well, and the Intramural Sports Ultimate teams are evident. After one week, there has been blood, sweat, and tears shed on the North Fields of the Multiplex. I have seen airbenders throwing bullets, backhands, hucks, and hammers. I have seen Callahans (when the defensive team catches the opposing team’s pass in their endzone, similar to a safety in football). There are some excellent Iso players, and some Landsharks that are hustling unlike anything I have ever seen (they are the reason for the blood and tears).
Currently, William Papleacos is leading the league with an astounding SIX touchdown passes after only ONE game. His team, Team HK, absolutely overran their opponent in a heart wrenching 25-0 slaughter. The league’s leader in touchdown receptions is Robert Kellum of GS Wesley with FIVE touchdown receptions – that would tie an NFL record.
In the Co-Rec division, Team HK is looking like the team to beat. However, the early dark horses to take the crown are BCM Team and The HUCKstables. BCM Team put on a solid showing in their first outing with fourteen scores while only being scored on twice. In the men’s division, GS Wesley is far and away the best team. That being said, Cougar Bait is no slow leak; their big three of Zaki Durry, Cardinal Clarke, and James Kearney are among the best in the league.
As I standby to watch the remainder of the Ultimate regular season, I look forward to seeing some #SCTop10-caliber plays and some Olympic-caliber athletes. Head out to the North Fields of the Multiplex at the RAC Monday through Wednesday nights to watch some fast-paced, high-flying Ultimate action.
