TIGHT ULTIMATE IN OTTAWA AT NATIONALS
Ultimate is our most popular spring sport with 52 girls from Grades 8-12 playing on four ultimate teams. YHS combines with St. George’s for this co-ed sport. When you combine Tigers and Knights you get “TIGHT”. Our TIGHT teams include two Junior (Gr. 8-10) level teams and two Senior (Gr. 11-12) level teams. The teams have been busy competing in our local league and some teams have attended some weekend tournaments.
Varsity TIGHT travelled to Burlington, WA to compete at one of the largest tournaments in North America, Spring Reign. This past weekend, our Varsity TIGHT Team travelled to Ottawa, ON to compete at high school Ultimate Nationals at Carleton University.
Ultimate playoffs for all levels are coming up in May.
