Playing Ultimate for the team

Though as a student Hailey Trefethen ’08 was plenty busy with her coursework in anthropology, she still found time to commit to playing for the Ultimate club team. She enjoyed the people. And the workout wasn’t bad, either.

“I played for the team aspect. We had amazing coaches who worked with all of us on our own different levels, from getting throws down to the strategy behind the game,” she says. “And it was hard for me to always set aside the time to get out and go for a run, but as a team member and as a captain I knew I had to be there every practice. So while it might be a concealed workout, I wanted to get out there every night and throw a disc, and run others down into the end zone.”

Though the relatively new Santa Clara team faces stiff competition in its district, players say they continue to improve. “Every time we went to a tournament, the level of play stepped up. I have no doubt the team will become competitive on a regional level in the next year or two,” Trefethen says.
