Athletics - Ultimate Frisbee
At Merriconeag, we take our frisbee seriously. Coached by Rich Young, president of Maine Ultimate, our co-ed team is on the cutting edge of this growing sport.
In Ultimate, team members make their own calls, relying on close cooperation between players on both sides rather than on referees. This cooperative element of the game, combined with its hard-playing style, makes it a good fit for our school, where sportsmanship and athleticism go hand-in-hand.
Merriconeag was undefeated in their regular season and placed 5th in the State Championships at the Cumberland Fairgrounds.
Alumni Become Captains of their College Ultimate Teams: Two of our alums who are now juniors in college will be captains of their Ultimate Frisbee teams next year: Cyrus Fenderson will be captain of his Clark University team and Tyler O'Brien will be captain of his Macalester team. Congratulations, Cyrus and Tyler!
After losing their opening game to a team from Seattle, Wash., they rallied back with wins over teams from San Francisco, Chicago, and Madison, Wisconsin before losing to Boston in the semifinals. The team was then able to beat San Francisco again for third place in the tournament.
