Solstice | Eugene, Oregon
June 21-22, 2014
This past weekend we participated in our first tournament of the season in Eugene, Oregon: SOLSTICE! We thoroughly enjoyed watching our new teammate, Claire Sharman, constantly giggle and tear up over how happy she was to be back in Eugene. We started the season strong by going 3-0 in Saturday pool play against Schwa (12-9), Further- Eugene Women’s Ultimate (13-3), and Viva Ultimate (8-6). Saturday evening had us playing in the showcase game against Seattle Riot. Though we lost 6-9, it was a very high level and gritty game, with teams making incredible plays on both sides of the disc. Thanks to everyone who stuck around to watch and support, and to Fury, whose heckling was ON POINT. Sunday morning we beat Wildfire Ultimate 15-6 in quarters, which led us to a rematch with Riot for semis. We had a few lulls and lost 6-15, but are grateful for the opportunity to play such an excellent team twice in one weekend. We ended the day with another win over Schwa (14-9) and a third place finish in the tournament. Three more weeks until Chesapeake!
