Waynflete Ultimate team has successful debut

Waynflete’s Ultimate Frisbee team debuted this spring in the Maine High School Ultimate League.

Ultimate is a fast-moving, 7-player game that is a little like soccer or football with a frisbee. Ultimate employs a “Spirit of the Game” ethos that emphasizes sportsmanship, fair play, and the ability for players to call their own fouls during the games (no refs!).

The league is made up of over 50 teams from surrounding high schools. This spring, Waynflete competed every Wednesday against teams from Scarborough, Portland, Cheverus, South Portland, and Westbrook. The first few games were eye-opening for the team, but the rest of the games were close decided by 1 or 2 points in a game to 13, included an exciting win against Cheverus.

This team did a great job in all respects this year and have been instrumental in setting the tone and building the foundation of Waynflete’s frisbee program.
