With a strong third-place finish, the coed ultimate team completed their first tournament with high hopes for the future.
The UTM Invitational Tournament hosted George Brown, UTSC, Humber Lakeshore, and Humber North this past Friday. Although the team suffered two losses against Humber Lakeshore and George Brown, they managed to qualify for the semifinals with a win against UTSC and Humber North.
Despite their previous success and evening the score within the last four minutes, the UTM ultimate team lost in overtime against Humber North.
Humber North had the lead during the finals, but George Brown managed to make a comeback to win the tournament.
Ultimately, the team came together well, “despite only having one practice together”, said Matthew Fraschetti, coach and captain of the team. This year, eight veterans and six freshmen represented the team at the tournament.
With a history that includes the title of 2014 Fall Ultimate Division 2 Champions, the team hopes to continue doing well for the rest of their season, with games taking place on Saturdays.
